It's the Economy, Stupid

I received my driver's license renewal form last week. The cost for an annual renewal is $88.75. This is not a fortune.

But I noticed, for the first time, that you can pay your license on a monthly or bi-monthly installment, paying either $7.60 a month or $15.17 every two months. This payment plan can only exist because there is a significant need for it. It makes me sad to think there are enough people in this province who cannot pay $88.75 in one payment, that there is a need for payment plans for drivers licenses.

A lot of people are really hard up. This is not good. :(

mine is $123 due to that rolling stop - hey there shouldn't be a law! It's a Quebec thing! Mrs. A.

You are probably the only person in the province ever to be charged for a rolling stop. Really? What other kind is there? A full stop? That's what I call an Ontario stop since my sister is the only person I know who does them.
