I understand that, on the surface, the idea of tracking miles is a revenue replacement scheme that seems to have the added feature of being more equitable.
If one drives more, one pays more regardless of the amount of fuel they burn.
It is my belief that government simply spends too much.
Government can make a one billion dollar project cost three billion faster quicker than the blink of an eye.
How about instead of figuring out a way of collecting revenue lost by more efficient cars, we try to cut spending.
A few fewer street lights, a little less side walk, in the middle of nowhere, that no one will use. All nice items yes, but maybe we can’t, and should not, afford them.
It seems that they government views any lost revenue as monies stolen from them.
Government was never meant to be a business, continually seeking income.
