Letter: Administrative fee rankles driver

I recently received a red-light camera violation notice in the mail, and I was shocked to see that now in addition to the $50 ticket there is a $30 "administrative fee" on top.

Apparently, the $50 that each ticket garners for Suffolk County is not enough. Now they need an administrative fee on top of the already high fine for the violation?

It seems to me the everyday person is just getting clobbered with more fees and taxes. I don't have an issue with paying for making a right on red in error, but I do have a problem with paying for administrative fees that are nonsense. I'm sure there are many more like me who are fed up.
