You should contact the court as soon as possible. Depending on the jurisdiction, Courts may reschedule court dates if you contact them in advance. You may also hire an attorney in your jurisdiction who can appear on your behalf. Good luck!

You can often re-schedule a court date especially if it is hasn't previously been re-scheduled. Call the court as soon as you can because some courts require advance notice to re-schedule.
Alternatively, you can retain a traffic lawyer to appear for you. Most of our clients don't go to court allowing us instead to handle it.
BTW, you are faced with a 4-point speeding ticket which could hurt your insurance rates so definitely fight it.
