NYC "crash tax" starts next year

If you're in a traffic accident in New York next year requiring the heroes of the FDNY to respond, you will be sent a bill for services rendered, according to WCBS-TV:
Starting next summer, the city plans to bill drivers in accidents that require an emergency response.
The so-called “crash tax” works like this: A car fire or accident with injury would cost you $490. A car fire without injury, $415. And any vehicle accident without injury will run you $365.
Of course Mayor Bloomberg supports the proposal which does not require city council approval.

Taxes are the price we pay for public services.  Isn't that what the statist keep telling us?
