As I understand the proposition, the tax-per-mile plan would replace the tax-at-the-pump way of generating dollars. No double taxing for gasoline powered vehicles versus single taxing for EV's.It's to tax the electric vehicles which don't pay gas tax basically. Only problem is it will double tax gas cars, but that's a bonus in their book.
Yup, about as voluntary as 'black boxes' in newer vehicles, license plate readers, and cameras over intersections ☹I can't read the article, it wants me to subscribe.
I don't see how this can work unless you give the gov access to your car's computer to track you. And I know that's already happening with insurance companies, etc., but at least it's voluntary (they say).
This will punish rural and suburban people. Working people mostly.
