If you plead not guilty you will be given a chance to negotiate with the prosecutor. If you have a clean driving record you will likely be given an offer to plead guilty to a lesser charge. It may still result in a fine, but at least you would save points on your license (which will keep your insurance rates in check), and will keep you from being prosecuted.

Of course, if you want to take your chances, you can plead not guilty and go to trial. But unlike a criminal case, there is no jury and a judge only needs to find you guilty by the preponderance of the evidence, rather than beyond a reasonable doubt. That means only that he is convinced that it is more likely than not that you committed the act you were ticketed for.

It may make sense to consult with an attorney who handles traffic court cases. Hiring a private attorney will go a long way in giving you professional representation who can look at your case, form a strategy and forward your best legal argument, It will also serve to make the parties involved take your position more seriously.
