I read that the state is considering having auto drivers pay for the miles they drive. Aren’t we doing that now?
If the state takes the gas tax off and replaces it with a mileage tax it would only make it difficult for the people who don’t do any damage to the roads. An automobile that weighs twice as much does more than 20 times the damage to roadways. It only makes sense these larger vehicles pay more.
The larger vehicles use more gas which means more tax. If the heavy and light cars all pay the same then the lightweight cars would be paying for the damage that the heavy vehicles are causing.
The state needs to take a look at what is truly fair. You break it, you fix it.
