Response: No, you should not ignore the ticket. Red-light camera tickets are generally legal in California. You need to fight it since you were not the one operating the vehicle at the time of the ticket. So, you need to show up to the Court hearing to dispute that you were the one driving the car and also bring up your due process right to cross-examine the witness, which you obviously cannot do with a red light camera. If the state cannot prove that you were the one driving, the ticket must be dismissed. See California Vehicle Code Section 21450.5. Also see Section 21453(a):

Are you required by law to identify the driver?


Response: No, you are not. The government has the burden to identify the driver.
