"...bills will be sent to insurance and shouldn't concern drivers.......A third party company handles the billing for the new fee........."

This IS a reason for concern. IF a government entity wants to do this, it should have it's own employees do it, not share the plunder with a "third party". And who do you think pays for insurance? Rates for customers in those places will jump precipitously.
