So if you get a traffic ticket or ordinance citation, always ask for a court date or dismissal. They may not even put it on the docket.

It's never smart to pay a ticket straight up anyway. Them that asks, get. So ask.

The bulk of money comes in from tickets, fines and ordinance violations.
If a Wayne County Sheriff writes a ticket, the county needs to send somebody. It can be the officer who wrote the ticked or someone from the county who can negotiate a plea.(Personally, that's great when they send a rep instead of the officer as the county rep can't testify. He can only offer a deal.)
Other offenses require an attorney from the county. These cases are handled on "state" days assigned by the court. Now there will be one state day per week and the judge will need to move things along. They will not be as likely to take two hour lunches or put things off until next time.
Boo Hoo.
