Being taxed by the miles driven makes about as much sense as taxing city dwellers by the amount of steps taken on a city sidewalk. It will penalize a select group of people.
I live in the country and I already limit my driving to a certain number of days per week. Now, if the powers who came up with this asinine idea would provide bus service and a park-and-ride to the Bordeaux area, I would gladly take the bus.
What will be their next bright idea? Taxing the air we breathe? I for one can’t wait for the next election so I can vote those brilliant minds out of office.
