FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- A Fort Collins college student is worried he might lose his driver's license after Fort Collins municipal court officials rejected his coins to pay a fine.

Ted Nischan was rebuffed when he tried to pay a $160 speeding ticket with his change bucket. He didn't have the cash and he says banks wanted to charge him too much money to cash in the coins.

According to the Fort Collins Coloradoan, the court said city officials didn't have time to count the coins.
