```Integrate[DiracDelta[t], {t, -a, a}] = 1, where a > 0.

Maybe Mathematica think Integrate[DiracDelta[t]  DiracDelta[t - 2] ,
{t, -3, 3}] is a little bit complicated. (As far as I know, the result
should be 0)

But, Integrate[Anything, {t, a, b}] + Integrate[Anything, {t, b, a}] =
0, so you will get the result.
