72 km/h in a 50 zone, reduced to 65km/h

I got pulled over last week for speeding in Brampton. The officer said I was going 72 km/h in a 50 km/h zone, took my license and insurance and went back to her car. She said she had to give me a ticket automatically because it was a complaint zone, but she reduced it to say I was going 65 (though the ticket cites the reduction).

I'm worried about the impact on my insurance since it's a brand new policy. I'm a primary driver on one of my mom's cars under her insurance policy and don't want to have a massive increase in premium as I'm only 19.

Should I fight the ticket? By fighting it, there is a possibility it could get worse (increased to 72) which is my reservation about taking it to trial. Also, if it does get increased, I'll get 3 demerit points; does this affect my insurance any differently than no points?

Never been in a situation like this before, my first ticket

Any advice?

Correct, if it goes all the way to trial. It's not just a possibility, it's almost guaranteed.

Points are for the Ministry. Insurance companies don't usually care about points. They know you were convicted of speeding and that's all they really care about. There's a chance they'll let your first offense slide. It all depends on the insurance company. If you have any questions regarding your insurance, you can always call them anonymously.
