HOLLY SPRINGS, Ga. — The surging price of gasoline has come to this: a "fuel surcharge" on your next speeding ticket.
Drivers caught speeding in this north Atlanta suburb soon will have to pay an extra $12 — to cover $4-a-gallon gas costs for the police officers who stop them.

I seems like over that last six months every business has used increases in fuel cost to raise prices way beyond cost increases.

If it stops idiots from speeding. Go for it. Call it whatever you want. Increase the penalty to a thousand dollars if necessary. Make twenty mph over the limit a felony crime.
