Fairfax, VA asked in Traffic Tickets for Virginia

Q: I got trafic ticket "Drive w/o headlights". In court page the charge is "Drive w/o lights" Code Sec 46.2-1030.

I bought the car ACURA ZDX 2010 just 10 min before was stoped by police. And car has Daytime Running Lights. Do I have a chance in court or should just pay a fee?
