Do the pictures they sent you clearly show you driving the vehicle?

No just 3 pics, one at the white line, one through the intersection and one with the licence plate.

I remember reading a post on here where some guy mentioned how he managed to beat the system by arguing in court that he wasn't the one driving.

Don't remember where the link was or else I would post it.

if you were caught turning right on red light (without stopping), those are easy to beat.

if you went right through the intersection, well, that's a bit tougher...

Exactly what someone already said, can't prove it's you driving so no points. Pay the fine and make sure you don't get nailed for points. Say it was a friend driving or something.

You don't get hit with demerit points for red light camera tickets, because as mentioned, they don't take photos of the driver (they're not allowed to due to privacy concerns). Just pay the fine, there's no points involved even if you do. You can take it to court but if the photos clearly show you running the red you're going to lose, probably won't have points involved still but you just wasted a lot of time.

Just pay it.

It's been said but I'll reiterate, a red light camera ticket cannot be contested on the basis that you were not the one driving. The registered owner of the vehicle is responsible for the fine, regardless of who was driving (unless the vehicle was reported stolen).

I believe one course of action is:
- Delay as much as you can
- Ask for a translator
- Throw a temper tantrum that your 11b charter rights are violated
- Ask the camera to testify so you can question it
- Claim they brought a different camera to court to testify

Or you could just be a responsible person by paying the fine and not running red lights in the future. It's really your call.

I'd love to have some advice as well. I would pay the fine but it's just too expensive, $325.
So I got 2 options, get a trial or Early Resolution(meet with prosecutor). Which one is better if I'm simply look for a reduced fine?
