Regarding Newsday's editorial concerning the debate over returning ticket fees after vehicle repairs, you got it right this time ["Have a heart for struggling motorists," Letters, June 27].

The fact is, people are guilty of these infractions, and as such, they should at least pay the administrative cost of processing the ticket. A little personal responsibility is in order. If people weren't guilty, chances are they wouldn't have gotten the ticket in the first place.

Last year, I got a ticket for an expired inspection. Guess what? It was expired. Guilty!
