NYC Illegal Street Pick up summons

I got a 1,000 summons for an illegal pick up / street hail from an undercover cop at LaGuardia (stupid I know).

Has anyone ever tried to fight it in court?

My worry is that if I do they will give me a higher penalty. Right now I have a perfect record.
And I'm wondering if I could pay less but maybe shouldn't take my chances.
Anyone who knows someone or themselves have been through this please share.

Illegal pick up? There is a 500 fine for picking up a street hail as FHV and you don't have to make an appearance for that. What exactly was the summons they gave you in the mail say? Did TLC or NYPD give you this?

It was tlc. It's a summons to appear in court. 1,000 offer for out of court settlement. Up to 10,000 max penalty should I go to court it says

It may be your first offense, but I bet it's not the first time you did this. Cash or square?

My friend got a 2000$ summons for the same thing at jfk. First time offense. He went to the tlc office and they offered to settle for 1250$. You can maybe try going to tlc office to check if you get another settlement
