Don't have the money to pay for my seat belt ticket. I already requested an extension on the appearance date.What else can I do?

Asked over 2 years ago - Los Angeles, CA

I've looked into setting an arraignment date, but I wouldn't be able to get out of work. Can you pay for a ticket BEFORE your arraignment date (if i chose to go that route)?
