I suggest requesting another continuance if the DA's Office where you received this ticket will not dismiss this citation. Most DA Offices around the state are aware of the DMV delays/closures due to COVID.
First, getting Improper Equipment is a reduction, not a dismissal, so it will be on your driving record. I suggest consulting with an experienced local traffic attorney in the county where you got the ticket to do review your other driving history with you, and advise you accordingly.

Just hire a traffic attorney in the area where you are to appear in court (this will be listed at the top of the ticket) - easy peasy lemon squeezy.

This is a serious criminal traffic charge. If the stop arm was not extended and / or the red lights flashing - you should not have gotten a ticket. You should consult with a local traffic attorney to see what your options are. Best of luck.
