TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

New details this morning on speeding tickets in Pima County, they could cost drivers more money.

This is if a recommendation by county administer Chuck Huckelberry is approved. 

A new surcharge would increase the cost of a traffic ticket and civil court filings.  The additional fee could be $20.  It would be applied to filing civil complaints, eviction complaints and civil traffic cases.

For speeders a surcharge would also be added by the state of $17 for their tickets. That could mean an extra $37 out of pocket, and depending on how fast the driver was going, traffic tickets would cost about $176. 

County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry says the fees are expected to generate $1 million per year and could help pay for operational costs at the new Pima County Service Center. 

Of course all of this will happen, only if the plan is approved.

The new fee would start on July 1, 2014.
