Not so for the new civil penalties, which are annoying but essentially toothless. A $75 civil penalty for running a red light as ticketed by a camera does not carry jail time. It does not go on a driver's record. Instead of turning over an unpaid ticket to a warrant office, it will be turned over to a collection agency -- an irritating but considerably less fearsome possibility than a cop with cuffs showing up on your porch one day.
