The day I went, there were 15 of us or so fighting the tickets, the first 4 or so got off because the officer didn't show. I was the fourth, so others may have got off for the same reason, I don't know, but it did seem like a fairly good likelihood that day. It may still be worth a try...
I did like the analogy of a parking ticket officer compared to a prostitute-very appropriate!
