We do things differently in Australia. No court appearance, just a fine and loss of points and an almost zero possibility of getting the fine reversed.
Lots of people get hit by trains in this city. Too many level crossings.
Anyway I think there's an episode of the Big Bang Theory that can help you. Season 3 somewhere. Sheldon goes to traffic court. Track that episode down, watch it, don't do what Sheldon does, and you should be fine.
