Is it possible to get my traffic tickets out of collections and make a payment plan with the court again?

Contact the clerk and see whether they have a procedure. You might also try negotiating with the collections agency - they may be willing to waive some or all of the collections costs. Good luck!
I agree with Mr. Haber, you should contact the clerk's office first and find out their procedure for getting your case(s) out of collections.

I cannot speak to J-ville but in Miami, where I primarily practice, this is such a common occurrence that the Clerk's office has an internal mechanism to deal with these matters. In Miami an experienced traffic lawyer could help you quickly and efficiently. I suspect, but do not know, that J-ville has a similar procedure in place.
I suggest that you reach out to a local J-ville area traffic lawyer and hire one to assist you. Don't take this the wrong way but virtually any lawyer will be more competent than you (who has managed to get yourself into this position in the first place) to get you out of this mess.
If you choose to go it alone (which I urge you in the strongest of terms not to do) then I suggest that you contact the Clerk's Office directly and ask them what, if anything, their protocol is.
I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
