DMV May Start Charging a Fee for Walking in the Door

The Rhode Island DMV has pitched a plan in its latest budget request where they would charge a $15 fee just for walking in the door. The fee would be for anyone who shows up to do something that they could've done in the mail, like a license or registration renewal. They wouldn't charge people for services that actually do require showing up in person. They're estimating it would bring in about $1 million in new revenue a year. There's no word on whether the governor is going to approve the plan or if other states' DMVs will try this.
