The In 2003 the State of Michigan incorporated an Drivers Responsibility fee. Which has turned into a blatant scam. What it is there are certian driving violations/offenses that you are assesed these fee's. with two catagories
Catagory I which normally is $100.00 one time fine.
Catagory II which can range from 150.00-$1000.00 assesed for two years.
If you don't pay the fee within a certian amount of time your divers license will be suspended.
Here is the scam,
There are many people such as myself, who paid the drivers responsiblilty fee, but for some reason it was recorded as being paid late. with no notice your drivers license are suspended, and DMV never let's you know. Many citizens in michigan are finding themselves in this situation. So on top of the original fine/ticket you have to pay. then you have to pay Drivers responsibility fee, and the reinstatment fee. And when this is challenged in the court system. They say that as long as the DMV has in their system that they mailed it they are not responsible for you recieving. You have people who has paid the Drivers Responsibility fee on or before the dead line, having their license suspended without their knowldge, and then they get pulled over or maybe go through an inforcement zone only to find out that the are driving on suspended opp's. And the cycle start all over... this time you have to bail yourself out of jail, pay the driving on suspended opps ticket, and then the drivers responsibility fee.
