Just give us your credit information and we'll debit you as we see fit.

We received a moving violation ticket a while back for tinted windows. Our car, C4 aka Ms. Dyno-mite aka Yakuza, has tinted windows which apparently looked just a little too dark for the cop sitting by the boat basin on the Westside. Meanwhile, she's over 2 years old and we've never had a problem before, go figure.

Anyhow, we got a letter in the mail yesterday warning us a suspension in his license if he doesn’t fork over a guilty plea and whatever the fine is.

Normally we’d fight a ticket like this but to be honest, the city has got us by the proverbial balls. Lrudlrick and I are swamped with work and don’t have time to spend all afternoon at traffic court.

So I brought the notice with me to the office to pay the darn thing online. You’d think the city would want our money as soon as possible but you can’t pay a moving violation online.

To make matters worse, the letter doesn’t tell you just how much the fine is. They have a tear out section to enter your credit card information but no information on just how much to expect the city to rape you.

They mention an enclosed card in the envelope but there is nothing in the envelope except for return envelope.

Am I to blindly give my credit card information to the city to charge what they desire?

It’s bad enough you charge us a convenience fee for paying parking tickets online, now your just asking us to give you our credit card info without stating the debit amount?

This girl isn’t a happy camper.
