A few weeks ago I was in a car accident, it was 100% my fault, the police officer gave me a ticket for disobeying a traffic signal but told me that the other people seemed to be pretty nice and if I didn't pay the ticket off I'd get a court date, and if I went to court and no one showed up (he told me 90% of the time no one shows up) that I wouldn't have to pay the ticket and the accident wouldn't go against my record. So the question is, When I go, if no one shows up, what should I say, will I have to say anything? If people show up, then what would I say? If it makes a difference I'm from Illinois and I don't have a lawyer

There's not really much to say IF the other people don't show. There is no one there to accuse you of any guilt.
If asked just say that all damages have been paid by my insurance.1
