We cannot provide you with legal advice on this site, only legal information. If you want the matter to be resolved quickly, then pleading guilty would almost certainly be the option to choose; however, pleading guilty would guarantee you a conviction (albeit only on a traffic offence rather than a criminal conviction) and would carry a fine and possible effects on your insurance. If you feel you did not commit the offence, or do not believe the Crown has the evidence to prove the charges beyond a reasonable doubt, then going to trial to fight it would be the better option.

Keep in mind that if you opt to fight it and the officer doesn't show up to court on that date, they prosecutor will likely drop the charges.
