Are there additional court costs if I wish to appear in court?

No - Court costs are already included in the fine amount stated on your citation. There are also no additional costs to have your case heard by the Judge at trial other than your time off of work, etc. to attend the trial. There may be additional costs involved in subpoenaing a witness or hiring an expert witness to appear on your behalf to testify at trial should your case demand the same. Instructions for subpoenaing witness are provided by the court. All costs associated with preparation for trial are your sole responsibility.
