If you owe the county money and need to re-register your car, get ready to pay up.

Starting this week you'll have to pay all you owe to El Paso County before you can register your car.

It's an effort to help balance the county's budget. As we've reported, uncollected debt to the county totals more than $150 million.

All this is going to do is ensure there are more unregistered uninsured vehicles on the street. Do you really want to take away a persons means to get back and forth to work? You make it harder for them to pay thier bills... including that precious little debt to the county.

I'm selling my house and moving to new mexico

Are you serious? What the hell is cook thinking? So now I can not only pay my taxes but I can't even register my car to look for a freaking job? So I can catch up on my taxes. I've been out of work for a year and now he wants to take away my transportation too?
