What can I do if I the date on my traffic ticket was wrong? Posted on August 16, 2011

In blue springs Missouri, I got a ticket for expired plates ($55.00) court date written for 8/16/2011. I go to pay it this morning, 8/15/11, and the cashier says it was due on the 13th, and will have to pay an additional $50 for not appearing in court. I figured I must have made a mistake and paid $105.00 total. Looking later it most certainly says the 16th. I have the original ticket with the wrong date plus the receipt showing I paid the $50 extra a day before the listed date. Can I do anything about this? I'm not looking to have the ticket thrown out, but I do have another ticket (also $55) due in 3 weeks, and I feel like I just got fleeced.
