Thanks to the downturn in our economy, more and more cities are trying to find creative new ways (read sneaky new ways) to obtain funds. For example, being charged an "accident response fee" if you have a wreck and police or fire shows up; a monthly fee to cover the cost of streetlights; getting a ticket if your vehicle idles for more than one minute. This is on top of higher fees for hunting or fishing licenses, copies of birth certificates, dog licenses or parking. Keep an eye on your pockets folks, or you won't have anything left to put in them.
