What do I do about this ticket?

I recently crashed my car. I live in California and a few weeks prior to the accident, I received a ticket for not having my front license plate on. Now, I don't know what to do about the ticket since my car is at my grandfather's to get fixed. Does the ticket get dismissed? Do I still have to pay a fee?

    The ticket and the crash are 100% legally UNRELATED issues.

    The ticket doesn't get dismissed.

    The officer that wrote the ticket does not know you were in an accident.. You still need to take care of the ticket.

      Neither the officer or the court CARE about the crash, at least not in relation to the ticket.

    You still have to pay the ticket, even if you dont currently have the car. It doesnt go away just because the car is out of action.

    You still have to pay the ticket. Just because you're a terrible driver and wrecked doesn't excuse you from the ticket for a missing license plate.
