revised ques: Can one submit a affidavit of defense with non-guilty checked along with a statement in place of an in person showing for an arraignment hearing of a non-moving traffic infraction. Not to appear in person for arraignment.
Not a trial. This is an arraignment hearing.
Pasco county sends arraignment via paper or online form, Hillsborough county doesn't seem to have this arraignment process online or via paper (NON-moving and non-criminal traffic infractions) other than utilizing the Florida Rules of Traffic Court section RULE 6.340
Disclaimer: Not avoiding an attorney, just want to avoid 2 trips to court. one for arraignment another for trial.

If you got a notice to show up for an arraignment then you must go. You don't have to go if you have an attorney though. So the decision is up to you.
