78.1 (1) No person shall drive a motor vehicle on a highway while holding or using a hand-held wireless communication device or other prescribed device that is capable of receiving or transmitting telephone communications, electronic data, mail or text messages. 2009, c. 4, s. 2.

It doesn't matter that it wasn't to your ear. You don't need to hold your phone up to your ear to text message, check your email, go on the internet, or do whatever you do. Using your phone as an audio device is also prohibited if the basic controls can't function without using the normal buttons on your vehicle.

The options are on the back of your ticket. You can either

(1) Plead guilty
(2) Go to a first attendance meeting where you will still be asked to plead guilty, but they may give you a reduced fine, or
(3) go to trial.

If the improper brakes are under S. 64 of the HTA, then both tickets don't carry demerit points. Option 2: the crown will most likely drop one of the tickets and have the other ticket's fine reduced. You may have to show that you fixed the brake system through a work-order or some pictures.

If you choose to plead guilty to both or one of the tickets, they will show on your driving record and could possibly affect your insurance premiums depending on your policy. You have an opportunity to show financial difficulties (unemployed, dependents, welfare, homeless) with the JP to reduce your fine even further and request extra time to pay, even a monthly installment arrangement.

In Brampton, the crown will most likely withdraw both tickets if the officer is a no-show.
