Coloradans feeling run over by new auto late fees

Loveland resident Mike Jones expected to pay $15 plus change when he registered his 24-year-old boat trailer last week, but he got hit with a $100 penalty for registering late.

Jones and dozens of other Coloradans who have had to pay the late-registration fee because of a new state law are hopping mad.

“I want to drive on good roads, and I don’t mind paying for them, but this is not the way to go,” Jones said.

Previously, the late-fee penalty was $10 and county clerks had the authority to waive it. Now the penalty is $25 a month, capped at a $100 maximum penalty, with no waiver authority.
