Absolutely! Especially considering in the very near future we all will be paying a road/mile tax just like the truckers do based on the miles driven in a year. Check it out!

But Bicyles should too, due to the construction and maintenance of bike lanes and sidewalks

I think hybrid/electric cars are good for carbon reduction, but as much of our highway funding is gas taxes, we need to ensure all vehicles pay for roads. The trick will be equalizing it.

While using less gasoline is good, it also means less gas taxes collected for road maintenance and repairs. Everyone should pay their share for the roads everyone uses.

This is the worst thing I have ever heard. We drive cars that are better for the environment and we get taxed because of it......Ridiculous!!

The government and manufacturers create this fallacy that electric cars produce less waste, yet disposal and manufacturing of these batteries causes a larger environmental footprint then oil ever has.

They should not be penalized for trying to help the environment if anything the gas guzzlers should have to pay more.

My pickup gets about 16.5 mpg. I'm fine with that because it does what I need it to do. My wife's car gets 33 mpg. I think it is stupid to punish people for purchasing efficient means of travel.

There should be perks and encouragement to purchase efficient, non polluting vehicles. Higher fees for big rigs, studs ...vehicles that are harder on the roads.

Much better option than letting people roll around on the streets self-medicating with weed and malt liquor. It will all be done in a safe clinical setting, not like you can buy it 7-Eleven at 2 am.

I believe it to be of very beneficial help to people at suffering from PTSD and other illnesses
