I would imagine that with photo radar, just as with red light camera, the vehicle gets the ticket, not the driver. This means there are no demerit points on your license like a regular speeding ticket, but you still have to pay the ticket or not be able to renew your vehicle registration.
My personal experience has been that police in Nova Scotia and Quebec to a lesser extent, are a lot more vigilant in patrolling for speeders than in Ontario, at least here in the Ottawa valley. By that I mean the number of road patrols for speeders was exponentially higher, particularly in Nova Scotia. Their favorite tactic there was to drive down a winding back road with low traffic flow and catch you going the opposite direction, you were on them, before you could slow and they seemed like they were on every back road constantly. They would also ticket you for 10km over. By contrast, in the rural Ottawa valley they seem to confine their traffic patrols to the main traffic arteries. They also seem more concerned with getting bad drivers than the 10km over drivers which they mostly ignore. Still 50km over in Ontario gets you a license suspension (not sure if its 6 months or 2 years), vehicle impounded, and DUI insurance rates when you get your license back.
