Road tax question...

So everyone that drives a car or truck pays taxes which supposedly help maintain roads via the gas pump.

What's going to happen in the years to come when a disproportionate number of cars are driving around on electricity?

Is annual state registration going to sky rocket?

Is every major highway going to become a toll road?

Separate electrical service to the home dedicated to vehicle chargers. It's already a thing in a lot of places, companies are giving subsidies and rebates if you have a separate service run for the charger. This allows them to meter that usage separately and impose pump-like taxes on it.

I feel your pain. I've always thought that hating taxes in Massachusetts was like hating the rain in Seattle.

Probably. Don't know if it's a WA state or King county (Seattle) thing but they're already talking a $100 yearly tab increase on elec/hybrid cars.

Wow, I didn't know there was such thing as excise tax. I just googled it. So it's like an annual property tax but for your vehicles? Sounds like straight up robbery if you drive a nice car.

Here in Texas it's sales tax at purchase and like $50 plus $14 safety inspection for registration every year. That's it.
Well not including the annual bs ticket from goofy hat wearing DPS officers.

So you get a subsidy and rebate to start paying taxes.
Seems like with a separate metered service people would just opt for a slow charge overnight on 120v. ...or run an extension cord from the dryer to avoid taxation. Amiright?

A lot of places are talking about taxes based on miles driven, which means an odometer check every year and taxes based on that. Of course they will never lower gas taxes in spite of charging by the mile and Washington's governor just tried (and failed) to pass an additional 15 cent per gallon "carbon tax" to hit the poor and others who can't or won't switch to those environmental disasters called electric vehicles


Sorry, I really don't like to get on political rants.

well it gets worse ....

how about besides the electric vehicles driving for free - our governor spending millions on bike lanes ( removing vehicle lanes or parking spaces) and the cyclists pay nothing at all - the bikes should require licence plates/stickers and pay for the roads they ride on

yea.... i know the counter argument of charging pedestrians to walk, but they are not taking away lanes or parking spaces

Don't get me started.
I love bikes. But they're all hypocrites.
They get mad when you pass them for going 15 in a 40 zone
But they never stop at stop signs and run red lights like it's legit.

I almost took out a group riding near Dallas. The entire hoard of 20+ cyclists ran a stop sign turning onto Lawson Rd from berry rd in Mesquite which is a 45mph little 2 lane road. If I had a load of dirt in my truck I would of made national news. Idiots.

I really hope they don't jack up our gas prices.

If they start charging by the mile honest people will be the only ones paying.
I'd have to get into the odometer "repair" business.
