A speeding ticket in Holly Springs, GA will cost you an extra $12 if you get one. Why?

No teh city didn't increase the speeding fine, but have added a fuel surcharge onto the 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.

The City Council passed the fee hike, effective July 1, to offset fuel prices that have eaten up nearly 60% of the police department's 2008 fuel budget, Police Chief Ken Ball says.
Most law enforcement agencies are looking at an exhausted fuel budget and this looks like a legitimate and creative way to make up the shortfall.
