I have a cousin who runs a daycare. That's exactly how people treated the
late-fee. She had to make hers OUTRAGEOUS. I think she went to $25 for 5
minutes, and $100 for 6 to15 minutes late, and 16 or more minutes late was
$200 before she got people to complain that it was outrageous and stop being
late. I doubt we'd see anyone pay those kinds of deposits. But it worked
for her business.
