Keep moving violation off driving record?

Earlier today I managed to completely miss a "no left turn from 4-6pm" sign, and got pulled over (along with at least 5 other vehicles at the same time). I received a citation for failure to obey traffic control device (169.06(4)(a)). I am clearly guilty, but I have been working on keeping a clean driving record which I have done for the last 6 years. I am wondering what my best bet would be to keep this off of my driving record (and avoid increasing my insurance premiums). I don't care about paying the $128 fine. I've read about deferred adjudication, stay of imposition/prosecution, vacating a conviction...but I'm not sure what the difference between these is, and which I should ask for. Do I have to get a trial date and speak to a judge in order to get one of these?

Please advise...

Thank you!
