Question: I've been doing research on red light cameras and it appears that, generally around the country, the citation issued is legally as important as a parking ticket. It doesn't result in a point on the driver's DMV record. What is the situation in California?
Answer: New York uses it as a parking cite and the fine is $50.00. However, where is the deterrent? If I run a red and only get a small fine and no point against my record, maybe it is worth the risk?
Q: In California, who is cited - the vehicle owner
or the driver?
Q: Is the owner asked to identify the driver?
Q: Does the driver receive a point on their driving
Q: Is the fine the same $320 that it would be for
a normal ticket issued at the scene?
