    If you're going to respond with an environmental answer, then since I'm closed to those arguments please simply indicate such and spend your time preparing a sandwich
    IMO, the environment has nothing to do with this.., its 98% economics..
    The gasoline tax must be increase, and this should happened over ten years ago, maybe more..
    Another lousy idea that was tried, a long time ago was private ownership of some toll roads...the Vanderbilt Parkway in Long Island for one..

    Don't worry.

    The State will create a new tax to help you pay for it. It'll cost you twice more, that way.

    Maybe.....maybe...hey, this is a great idea....how about if the states spend gasoline tax money ONLY on roads? Isn't that a strange idea?

    I was just saying that the government should stop lying to the people and start obeying it's own laws.

    California passed a ballot proposition commanding the state to spending collected gasoline taxes solely on road related projects.

    For some strange reason, two years later,...California again voted on a ballot proposition commanding the state to restrict spending of collected gasoline taxes to road related projects.

    Funny, but the voters didn't demand the politicians be put in jail for breaking the first law, but they didn't. Voters are damn stupid people. It's how we get stuck with the Bushes and Obamas of the world.

    true, but this is extra stupid. I have a truck that sits in the garage most of the time, are they going to make me pay to put a monitor in it?

    Re: Should GPS be installed inside vehicles in order to charge mileage taxes

    What I'd like to know is how are they going to know if you have a GPS installed or not? You don't have to own a car to get a DL. You can have a car and a DL but not drive anywhere. How are they going to stop a person from just taking a GPS out of a car?

    In otherwords how are they going to enforce this law? Are they going to give every cop a GPS locator and require them to check the car every single time they stop one? What about those people that never get stopped?

    Hmm...Yeah sure lets go to GPS road milage tax and get rid of gas tax!!!!! /sarc

    Can't answer the poll because one of the choices was not "HELL NO!!".

    Obama nixed that legislation.

    This thread is moot.
