It might be possible you live in a state that has an existing law that relates to the amount time in which the violator has right to due process concerning a traffic violation. In most cases there are also contributing factors, for instance the offender's driving record. The SOL would only apply to those days which the court is actually in session.

It is the charge, not the ticket, that would be dropped, and the ten days is for the driver to produce proof there was insurance at the time of the citation, not later.
