What can I expect if my court hearing is today for a traffic ticket that I have not paid?

I received a traffic ticket the other day for doing 84 mph in a 60 mph zone. I got pulled over. Then I got ticketed and he sent me on my way. Upon reading the ticket, I assumed that it read I had 30 days to pay, when actually it meant my court date was in 30 days. I have not payed the fine and the court house is nearly 6 hours away. What happens if I skip the court hearing?
