My understanding is that this sort of ticket is attributed to the owner because it is unclear who was driving, similar to a parking or red-light camera ticket. It appears that this ticket comes with a fine for the owner but no other consequences such as entry on a driving record due to this uncertainty of who the driver was. We are willing to pay the fine.
The owner of the car plans to instead go to traffic court and testify that the ticket should be attributed to a specific person. What would happen in this case? Is it possible that the alleged driver would be charged with the greater offence of Failure to Stop School Bus, with it's accompanying demerit points and insurance increase?
