Effective July 6, 2009, the New York Department Of Motor Vehicles will be charging $70 to lift a suspension from a motorist’s license. That’s double the current $35 suspension termination fee (STF).
It’s particularly outrageous given that the STF (which is imposed upon a motorist who answers a summons late or pays a summons late), is in addition to the fine and surcharge for this ticket. You pay what you owe (albeit belatedly) and they charge you even more money!
The NY Legislature and DMV continue its trend of exorbitantly taxing New York drivers.
