I don't know about other states but here in Georgia they use red light cameras. They get around the whole issue of the 4th amendment by going through the Civil court. They also allow you to let them know if it was not you driving the vehicle. The threshold of evidence in the civil court is "Preponderance of evidence." The up side is this is not reported to your insurance company and there are no points.

If it is a traffic violation, how does it go to civil court? Do they sue you for being a shit?

So what happens when people obey the law when they go by the cameras; and the cameras no longer bring in a + cash flow? It must cost a fortune to keep the camera network up and running!
