This means that the longer you drive, and depending on what times of the day you drive, the higher your taxes will be. So if you drive during rush hour for example, your taxes will be higher than if you drive at night. According to the CBO the more you drive, the more wear and tear you give the highways, the more liability you are for other motorist, and the higher chance you may be getting into an accident (which in turns takes time away from cops/hospitals) so for all of this they want to track down your vehicle’s movement and every time you pull near a Gas Station your vehicle will upload the information to their server and bill based on your mileage.
Dont get all worked up yet, the actual change may take years to implement since they have to start adding the tracking meters into the new vehicles that come out of the assembly. Upgrading all of the vehicles right now would cost to much, so far the only states that are really trying to jump on board are Oregon, and Washington, but they are only wanting to tax “Plug In Vehicles” and not regular gas guzzling trucks/cars. So I guess for the time being, were okay.
