This is a gross over reaching by the cop he essentially gave you 2 tickets for the same occurrence in violation of NYS and Federal Constitutional protections. While there is no plea bargaining in NYC, I would certainly move to dismiss at trial as the Constitution still applies. You need to retain counsel and forget about your photo evidence because their does not need to be a posting - your defense lies in the law not in the facts. Don't go it alone retain counsel - it will save you money in time and insurance increases if you spend some up front on counsel that specializes in traffic ticket defense.Ask a similar question
Yes, you can certainly fight these two 2-point tickets. In NYC, however, there are no deals or plea bargains in your court -- Traffic Violations Bureau. Therefore, to win one or both, you'll need to have a hearing before an administrative law judge.
I wrote an article that should help. See below.
Feel free to call me if you have any questions.

It will be difficult but you show up and try or hire an attorney to do so for you. It's at least 4 points and a few $100 in fines.
