A: If the violation is found committed, they will want the entire fine. I have never heard of the fines being waived due to an inability to pay, although judges and prosecutors can be sympathetic. Many court (but not all) will offer a chance to pay fines through community service, such as volunteering at a food bank or shelter, or other such.

Also consider what the committed infraction may do to your insurance rates. It can run into several thousand dollars over the 3+ years the infraction appears on your driving record.

You might want to consult with a traffic lawyer. Most offer a free consultation to discuss your case, and give you a quote for their services.
