It is very common for an officer to be unable to void a ticket after it's written.* The OP can certainly fight the ticket, and depending upon how the law regarding insurance is written, he may get it dismissed - it's possible that the law simply requires that insurance be in effect and failing to produce the card is not a separate violation.

* If the officer can't void the ticket, he can't take a bribe to void the ticket and can't "fix" tickets written by other officers to his friends and relatives.
