    Question Is a Parking Ticket for VC 4000(A) Correctable

    My question involves vehicle registration or title in the state of: CA
    Ok, so my old car didn't pass its smog check, and although I paid for my registration, I wouldn't get the tag until I passed the smog check. The part my car needed to pass the smog check cost more than the car was worth so I decided to buy a new car. I park my new car in my drive way and parked my old car on the street in the city of Altadena, CA. Within two days of doing so I received a parking ticket for 4000(a) by the la county sheriffs parking enforcement. It says on the ticket that registration violations may be reduced to $10 if proof of correction is provided, but after speaking to the customer service rep, I was informed that the practice was stopped as of Feb 2010. So my question is, if getting a ticket from a police officer for expired registration is correctable, how is it that getting a ticket from parking enforcement isn't? Shouldn't CVC 40303.5 also apply?

    How would VC 40303.5 have any relevance?

    I'm saying how can a registration infraction be correctable when given by a peace officer, but not when given by parking enforcement? It makes no sense to me that, according to the LA County Parking Enforcement, they stopped allowing expired registration to be a correctable offense since Feb. of this year.
