Top lawmaker wants mileage-based tax on vehicles... NOW

20 posts in this topic

Toll roads. It doesn't penalize someone who works much further away than someone who either can walk to work or has the luxury of working from home.

Mileage tax is more regressive where a toll, oddly enough in this case,would be progressive.

You can't allow the Big Three to build vehicles that get modest MPG and then turn around and take the person when they buy the vehicle, tax them property tax then the gall to try and tax how FAR they drive. Insidious.

Modernize each states funding method. Byzantine is a word I heard today to describe it.

Hey, what if they sold pot at the toll booths?

And then have the cops waiting a few miles down the road to ticket them for driving while impaired. Highway fund problem solved.

Seriously, I do support toll roads. Used them quite a bit in Virginia Beach, most of the booths were automated, and they worked fairly well. And I got pretty good at tossing that quarter. Could make a 10 foot bank shot while still moving.
