Online License Renewal
Got a letter from the Secretary of State offering me the option of renewing my driver's license online, being as I'm a safe driver and all. Cost is $10 plus a minimal payment processor fee. Sounds good. Get to the website and find out that minimal processing fee is $1.75. I'm supposed to pay a processing fee of over 10% of the cost of the sticker, when the maximum cost to process a $10 charge on a credit card is about 35 cents? I realize the state is in financial difficulty but that just smacks of usury.
