    If you are the owner when someone else runs a red light and causes an accident you are civilly liable for the accident up to the limit of the statute but you don't have to pay the fine for running the red light. That's how it works.

      just a camera, that takes a photo of a redlight-violating vehicle.

      One of the results of an incident like this (but more to the point, there were tons of contested tickets and the company that put the cameras in stiffed the city of the promised revenue increase) ended the use of red-light cameras in our city.
