A: If the ticket is marked mandatory court appearance you need to appear in court. Many towns make this ticket a mandatory court appearance which is not generally by zoom court. Call the court to confirm if yours is mandatory court appearance or look it up online.
A: The municipal courts are now operating on zoom. You should plead not guilty and the Court will schedule you to have an opportunity to speak to the prosecutor.

I would recommend given the nature of the violation that you consult with an attorney so you can achieve the best result.
