An automated photo speed violation is considered a civil violation and the law says the owner of the cited vehicle is responsible. In Georgia, you may "transfer" the violation to the driver of the vehicle by the below methods, as taken directly from the Georgia law:
A) Testifies under oath in open court or submits to the court a sworn, notarized statement that he or she was not the operator of the vehicle at the time of the alleged violation.
B) Presents to the court a certified copy of a police report showing that the vehicle had been reported to the police as stolen prior to the time of the alleged violation.
H.B. 978 40-14-18 Section 9
It should be noted that if the violation is not paid, the owner remains responsible for the violation.
