Worth challenging a moving violation ticket?

“So this weekend I got popped for “not coming to a complete stop” at a stop sign in DC, though I am sure I did. It is a $50 ticket, but I am wondering if it is worth challenging. I can afford to take the time out of my day, so that is not an issue. Here is what I do not know:

1) If I challenge the ticket at a hearing, are there court costs that would make this more expensive?
2) It would basically be the officer’s word vs. mine, is it worth challenging?
3) Would it just be easier to pay for it and how would I go about doing driving school to avoid points?

Thanks in advance for and help!”
