I failed to stop for a school bus today, will demerit points be taken off?

I was driving and as i was trying to pass a city bus, I failed to stop for a school bus with its stop sign out. I didn't even realize it until it honked at me. No cops pulled me over but from the research I've done today, the fine could be from anywhere from $400 to $2000 plus 6 demerit points.
If I was reported by the the bus driver or witness, would I get a ticket in the mail or would the officer show up at my door? How long before this actually happens? Also, would demerit points be involved or would I be charged as owner? Are school buses equipped with cameras now?
Thank you in advance for all your help!

- They would show up the address listed for the vehicle owner.
- Anywhere up to 6 months.
- No demerit points
- The owner of the vehicle would be charged.
