2001 5S "Turbo"
That penalizes the people who live in the rural areas of the country, and favors the city slickers. Is that fair?
However, the slity sickers get worse gas mileage than rural folks.Roads in rural areas serve fewer individuals, hence the 'city slickers' are likely subsidizing rural roads anyway.
But I can only drive one at a time! Why should I pay anything extra, or anything at all, for simply having a vehicle available to use? For dino juice the answer is simple, tax the fuel more. The more you drive, the more you pay. Extra taxes on non-plugin hybrids is simply perverse - if they save fuel, they should be taxed less. The trouble is plug ins and how to make them pay their share - the logical, but unpalatable, solution is some form of road pricing. I suspect in time many governments will move this way as they seek to recoup lost fuel taxes.Fee should be based on vehicle weight divided by number of tires, with some kind of discount applied to the first car. Additional vehicles pay full price.
Sounds good except that isn't how wear works IRL. There's a threshold of damage, so you end up with more of a curved graph. A certain amount of load/pressure/speed and something may essentially never wear. Exceed the threshold, and it accelerates exponentially, sometimes nearly instantly. Our cars do next to nothing and nearly all wear is from semis and work trucks.IMO the base fee should be the number of miles each individual vehicle drives each year, multiplied by the vehicle weight in tons.
The local ma roads republicans have stated that every man woman and child in the state owe a grand a year to maintain roads whether they drive or not. The trouble with this is that regressive fees attack the poor and drive non-compliance and legal costs.If no cars get on any highway they will go bad in time because of heat rain and freezing ground. Unless they built them like the Romans. There’s never been a semi truck on my asphalt drive and it is in poor shape Even sunlight evaporates the volatiles in asphalt
Then multiply by e^x or even by a power function.Sounds good except that isn't how wear works IRL. There's a threshold of damage, so you end up with more of a curved graph.

currently in Wisconsin “Fair” means don’t tax commercial and ignore poor people up north not paying tax and imprison southern poor people without paying any attention to who is dangerous versus who is just an irritation and doesn’t belongSo what does fair mean?
Scott Fitzgerald resembles your remark, his goal is to get his whole family in the state government, even though he has repeatedly proven to be incompetent instead of his constituents holding his nose to the grinder they pass him up to the federal government to cause problems there.America is profusely wasteful.
I think that there are super rich families in America that have most of the money. When there are children born to the family that are too stupid to take over the business. Those children become our congressman and Senators.
The reason our cars don’t get 100 mpg The more gas you buy the more taxes you pay. And then they say there’s global warming. Let’s put 3000 pound batteries in huge trucks to save the planet. That Has to be stupid kids from rich families in control.
Ohio is doing same thing on newer hybrids. I own a 2015 sonata hybrid; 2017 Lexus CT200h & a 2000 Insight mt. The insight is not assessed the fee. The claim they had to charge us more because they would not be collecting as much gas tax. Absolute horse do!I live in WV and pay $151 to renew my registration as opposed to a gas guzzler that only pays $51. Electric vehicles pay $300! This started last year. Other states have similar policies and I'm sure many Insight owners here live in those states. Just wondering if any of you in those states have found a way around this absurd policy?
