Either you can plead guilty, pay the ticket and hope your insurance premiums don't go up too high; you can plead not guilty and go to trial; or you can enter a plea bargain. A plea bargain is an option in which you would agree to plead guilty and, in return, the court would agree to lessen the penalties or drop one or more charges.
