You are not required to hire an attorney and you do have the right to represent yourself in Municipal Court. The law requires any person issued a citation to appear in court.

Request Driving Safety Course (if you qualify by the state mandated requirements) and pay a fee
Request deferred disposition and pay a fee (if you do not have a CDL license)
Request an extension of time to pay. Any extension of over 30 days carries an additional state mandated $25.00 fee.
