Another No Fault Insurance Fee Hike
According to the Detroit Free Press, the fee Michigan motorists must pay as part of the state's no-fault auto insurance plan will rise $10 per vehicle, to $170, on July 1st.
It's the latest in a series of extra costs to hit motorists this year. Effective Jan. 1, vehicle registration fees increased 20% and the state gas tax went up 7.3 cents per gallon, as part of a $1.2 billion road funding deal.
Many of our WFMK listeners feel that it's a lot of money, especially some people who just live on Social Security checks.
Another person said "It's ridiculous, I don't even drive the car that far." This same person drove a catering truck for 30 years and still has a chauffeur's license and also has a good driving record.
