Falls under Provincial Offences and it is heard by the Ontario Court of Justice in which matters such as Highway Traffic Act charges (HTA) are also heard.  Getting a traffic ticket in most cases would cause you to get demerit points resulting on a poor driving record which would impact your insurance rates. For instance, pleading to a ticket may be the easiest and fastest way out, but in the long run this can potentially impact your insurance, or even disqualify you from obtaining a motor vehicle insurance.  Racking up demerit points may also cause your license to be suspended.   

There are several options that are available, meeting with the prosecutor to discuss the offence or not pleading guilty and setting it to trial.  If the offence is more serious such as careless driving than you would receive a summons to appear to court.   Provincial offences stay on your driving record for three years.  In consulting a legal representative, you may save time and money in the long run.
