Obscene amount of money. To add insult to injury, they call it "bail" money.

If you present the fact that it is not you operating the vehicle in violation, you can not be held accountable for the violation. You are not bound to tell the court or any other entity who was driving.

Red light cameras are being shot down as illegal all over the country. I realize Californistan is a little "different" but I'd fight any red light ticket.

I don't think that Los Angeles even enforces the red light cameras anymore and voted to get rid of them after the current contract expires. You might not even get a ticket in the mail. Similarly I got "caught" in Santa Ana last year and like many cities they no longer put film in their cameras and I never got a ticket in the mail even though I was clearly caught.

When I got a red-light ticket in the mail (not in LA mind you), there was an option on it to mark "this is not me", then you list who it is, and their address if known.

So if you go racing around through lights wearing a mask, you should be alright?

Red-light cameras: Who knew L.A.'s red-light camera fines were 'voluntary'? - Los Angeles Times
I don't think you actually have to pay them. Pasadena just got rid of their program, and I read that LA did too... so this is kind of confusing to me.

Edit: Good news, maybe it wasn't a camera:

LA did away with their program too.
