If your main concern is avoiding having your insurance go up you could call the court and ask if you can take a defensive driving class (at least to know your options). You'd probably pay the court the same as if you just showed up today to pay it off. But, by taking the class it won't count the same so the insurance won't know anything about the charge. The court gets paid (which is all they care about with most violations) and the driver avoids any hike in insurance payments. Happens all the time.
