Where will $66 million in revenue come from for Nassau County if citizens immediately change their driving behavior [“ ‘Illegal’ ticket fee decried,” News, Oct. 28]?

County attorney Carnell Foskey’s defense of Nassau’s newest money grab is ridiculous. What happens to those poor souls who are ticketed but determined not guilty? Will they still be forced to pay the $105 “public safety” fee?

What many Nassau voters failed to do last Election Day was vote. The few who actually voted failed to vote out the incumbent and dysfunctional Nassau legislature. The lawmakers consistently fail to balance pie-in-the-sky budgets by raising fees. When will this madness end?
