Although Avvo makes it clear that these answers do not create any Attorney-Client relationship, please take special notice that I am not your attorney and this advice is not your legal counsel. Use it as mere information to fill your canteen of knowledge. :)
There are attorneys who cover traffic violations on a regular basis and do it for very low prices, and they can go to court on your behalf if you live out of town, and can submit pleadings for you to skip the arraignment, saving you time and money from losing work. Call a lawyer, it's cheaper than you think to save you a great deal of time and effort in getting the best possible result.
