Can I pay my ticket and still appear to plead ‘Not Guilty’?

No. Payment indicates a ‘Guilty’ or ‘No Contest’ plea and forfeiture of the fine monies. In the event you have been involved in an auto accident, a plea of No Contest is automatically assigned when you pay your fine, as opposed to a Guilty Plea, and can not be used against you in a civil trial for damages. Appearing on your court date gives you a chance to ask for a reduction in fines or to plead ‘Not Guilty’.
