In most states this doesn't matter. All that pleading innocent gets you is another trip to court, usually to a bigger court, rather than mayor's court.

Very likely they will. They have those days off, and that's why your court date is often on the ticket already.

Normally if the officer does not show up the case is dismissed.

Not me, I drive normal and don't speed. It's great at avoiding tickets!

almost 90% they show up. Plead guilty and the judge will reduce the ticket. If you can't pay the reduced amount that day ask to give you extension. Depending on the judge they might say extension or ticket reduction. Not both. It just depends on the judge. I once had it reduced to 150 from 750. Another time thejudge only reduced 50 bucks off my ticket. Go figure.
