Should I plead not guilty for a traffic ticket?

Asked 9 months ago - Flushing, NY

I received a ticket for making a left when the sign said I shouldn't have although as I received the ticket 4 other cars violated the same sign and I asked the officer if they will receive ticket also but he responded no since he said he was busy with me but his partner wasn't doing anything and also witnessed the violations. Am I able to fight this ticket since the officers decided to ignore the other vehicles?
