Your Arizona vehicle registration fee just increased

With nearly 7,000 miles of highway in the state, troopers with the Arizona Department of Public Safety certainly have lot of ground to cover.

Traffic stops are continuous, even if it’s as mundane as removing an illegal license plate.

But maintaining these patrols takes a lot of money.

And starting in January, you’ll be footing the bill with a new fee that’s being added to your vehicle registration.

And that fee isn’t exactly cheap. Doug Nick is with the Arizona Department of Transportation.

“It’s $32, $5 for street-legal off-highway vehicles and street legal golf carts.”
