You may soon be required to pay to help cleanup if you're to blame for a traffic accident in San Francisco.

The San Francisco Examiner reports the fire department estimates it will start collecting fees in two weeks. It was approved by the board of supervisors in July.

Motorists who cause an accident face a fee of up to $500, which is expected to be charged to the driver's insurance company.

It is expected to raise up to $600,000 a year to help the fire department close a $13 million budget gap.
