Technically, you are on the hook for $300 if you ignore your red-light camera ticket and also "a red flag" associated with your name will exist in the court dealing with your ticket.
However, this is not a binding "failure to appear" that will affect your DMV records. The issue should only come up if later you get an officer-issued traffic ticket that, by chance, sends you to the same exact court that has your red-light camera ticket on file.
Even if that happens, judges most always dismiss the $300 fine
, but they will make you plead guilty, no contest, or not guilty to the charge and you may have to fight it at a later date or go to traffic school.

If, for some reason, you are not satisfied with the answer, I would appreciate knowing why so that I can try to clear up any misunderstanding that may have taken place and still earn a positive rating from you. If you would rather obtain a refund of your deposit, just let me know and I will inform JA on your behalf. Finally, you may request me in the future by beginning the question with "THIS IS FOR MAVERICK".
