    Default Obama Draft Eyes VMT., Interstate Tolling

    Sounds like this is all trucking needs to add to the multitude of other problems the companies are dealing with.

    The draft calls for a “Surface Transportation Revenue Alternatives Office” within the Federal Highway Administration to study the feasibility “of a national mileage-based user fee system” over six years and conduct field trials of it. One section would alter existing law to allow state and local governments to toll interstates and non-interstate routes to ease congestion in areas with more than 1 million people.
    "VMT" (vehicle mileage tax), "user fee system"...notice how they avoid using the word TAX?
    A vehicle mileage tax would require a huge expansion of the washington bureaucracy to process the millions of mileage/tax reports filed. And would not lower the highway tax we already pay. The next step would be tracking devices mandatory in all cars...Big Brother is watching.

    Allow tolls on interstates and non-interstates? Another tax they are trying to shove up the motorists gashole!
    We've already paid for these roads with gas and highway use tax. And are you ready for tolls on your county road or street? Yeah , I know it says "areas with more than 1 million people", but how big do you think the government will make those areas...to snare that number?

    This whole idea is a bunch of road apples.

    Default Obama administration floats draft plan to tax cars by the mile

    Obama administration floats draft plan to tax cars by the mile

    Among other things, CBO suggested that a vehicle miles traveled (VMT) tax could be tracked by installing electronic equipment on each car to determine how many miles were driven; payment could take place electronically at filling stations.
