No, by paying a traffic ticket prior to appearing in court, you are admitting that the violation occurred. Therefore, there will no longer be a need for a hearing before a Judge. However, if you do not wish to contest the traffic ticket, you may pay the ticket prior to the hearing date and need not appear in court.
Similarly one may ask, can you pay a court fee in cash?

Can you pay for a ticket with cash?
If you don't want to pay your ticket online or by phone, you usually can pay it by mailing a check or money order to the court clerk's office. If you want to pay with cash, this usually requires an in-person visit to the courthouse or sheriff's office where you received the ticket.

As a result, a speeding ticket could actually end up costing you between 4 and 7 times the amount of the base fine. For example, California traffic tickets issued to Cali drivers for speeding at 15 MPH over the posted speed limit have soared to $360, but the base fine for this type of citation is a mere $35.
