Collect or impound, DMV

By The Bakersfield Californian

California Secretary of State Debra Bowen and everyone else promoting an $18 vehicle license fee really need to rethink this initiative. Why do they believe vehicle owners should be responsible for funding state parks? If more funds are required, increase entry fees to those who visit the parks.

The DMV does not enforce collection of license fees now, and this additional fee may cause more owners to ignore renewing their licenses. My family teases me about looking for expired tags. I look forward to the day when I do not see any expired tags, because that will mean that the DMV is doing its job.

My plea to the DMV: Collect renewal fees for all vehicles or impound those vehicles.
