Ticketmaster does Dunwoody!

I received a speeding citation1 last weekend. I paid the $100 fee online today. This is my final screen.

Dunwoody speeding citation with a $5 "convenience fee"

Someone with more experience with municipal court payments will have to tell me whether I would have had to pay a “convenience fee” if I’d shown up in person.

I desperately wish online ticketing agencies would call this something more truthful:

  • “PROFIT”
  • “WE HAVE TO PAY THE INTERNET SERVICE COMPANY”
  • “BECAUSE WE HATE YOU”
  • “BECAUSE YOU’VE CLICKED THROUGH THIS MANY SCREENS AND WE WANT TO SEE IF $5 ADDITIONAL WILL DRIVE YOU AWAY”

Seriously, this type of thing has got to be near the top of the most annoying customer service interactions.

  1. I-285. I regard this as the cost of driving in Atlanta. Eventually they’d pick me out of the crowd doing 70-75 MPH. There were a bunch of Dunwoody cops and it was Saturday night of St. Patrick’s Day weekend. I think they were doing sobriety pull-overs. []
