It’s Here: Oregon First State to Launch “Pay-by-the-Mile” Driving Track and Tax Scheme

| |


The freedom of driving is about to get a lot less free in more ways than one.

“Rare American” David Hastings, Oregon hybrid car owner told Fox News, “I’m a statist who is happy to blindly contribute to the total tyranny that has almost completely surrounding us all and I see no potential downsides to a technological control grid where the government tracks my every move—”

No wait, sorry, it was, “I’ve been free-loading on the highways for 20 years driving electric cars or hybrid cars, getting at least 40 miles to the gallon. So I haven’t been paying my share.”

Mr. Hastings apparently cannot wait to pay more taxes to drive on state roads while being tracked by the government as he drives on those roads. In fact, he has volunteered for this in a state transportation taxing scheme that will eventually be mandatory not just in all of Oregon, but likely the entire country.

In a move that 28 other states are in some form of transitioning toward, Oregon has officially launched it’s OReGO program, which will replace the gas tax by tracking a driver’s every move and charging a one-and-a-half cent per mile tax on it. Two of the three programs involved will use GPS tracking to trace and store driving and location data on every driver.

“To put a GPS monitor in everybody’s car, the government already knows too much about us as it is,” Jeff Kruse, a Republican lawmaker told Fox News.


(If I could have put more types of visual emphasis on that last line, I would have.)

So because of inflation and the reality that less people are driving and more people who do drive are choosing hybrid or higher gas mileage cars, this is the new way the system and its loving bureaucrats have come up with to pay for road and bridge maintenance: taxing your every driven move by tracking, tracing, and databasing your every driven move.

On top of that, OReGO vendors will take .40 cents off the top of every dollar collected just to run the system. That means someone’s making bank off this off the top, and that has nothing to do with fixing the roads.

Right now OReGO is on a volunteer-only basis and capped at 5,000 people, but the plan is to eventually make this mandatory for everyone, everywhere and as Fox News reports, “change the way states pay for roads — forever”.

At least the gas tax was a passive way to track people’s consumption/travel. It didn’t watch and store your every single mile driven.

The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) even made a cute (read:patronizing) little cartoon to introduce the program.

“With OReGO, you put a simple device in your car and drive! It’s cool!”


Watch ODOT Communications Manager Tom Fuller insert his GPS tracking device and explain how his car will be tracked everywhere he goes. Yay!

There is one version through ODOT that doesn’t involve direct GPS tracking, but obviously from the video of Mr. Fuller above and information on the OReGO website, this is not the option they are promoting or incentivizing.

In the non-GPS enabled version, the department of transportation sends you a mileage tracker in the mail, and you can track the miles driven online. The site states, “This OReGO option is delivered through a partnership with Sanef ITS Technologies, a global road charging expert, and Intelligent Mechatronic Systems (IMS), a technology leader in connected car and telematics systems.” Hard to believe it won’t also be tracking someone’s location, but that’s the claim.

However, with this version, you get charged for miles anywhere you go, even outside of Oregon. So if you take a cross country roadtrip, you will have to pay taxes on every mile driven to ODOT, regardless of the fact that it wasn’t in Oregon.

This version also does not come with all the “Value added services,” such as being able to “Earn badges that unlock for good driving behavior,” so you can “Compete with friends and family to see who can unlock the most badges.” Other features include showing you maps of everywhere you’ve been, tracking your carbon footprint and setting up “safe zones” that, for example, will alert you if your teen were to drive to an area you don’t want him or her to go.

Being tracked and traced by the government was never this much fun! Woo-hoo!

With the coming smart grid and Internet of Things, this will surely be mandatory for everyone, everywhere eventually.

It’s only a matter of time.

    Trust me when I say this, it will cost more to implement than it will take in. The fact people in general aren’t opposed shows just how far from what the founding fathers intended we have fallen. This is more government and more encroachment on liberty. The freedom to drive from point A to point B is being violated by this idiotic liberal agenda.

      The custom made mouse trap we build for ourselves genetically built perfectly made for our entrapment. This is a Perfect example that letting a Government use Technology is a Behavioral disorder, because their first three attempts will always be AGAINST ITS PEOPLE !!

This is the Reason why We The People Have a Constitution and a Bill of Rights written for the states and its people To recognise this FOOLISHNESS and put a stop to it !

        Exactly why we must get computers out or voting booths.

        • disqus_tKlEuAw2uq

          the computers can be made to vote for whom the people want to win and it does not matter who the person int the booths votes for

          • Arizona Don

            Exactly my point!

    • Why do you think people in general aren’t opposed to this? I can assure you that there will be quite an uproar over this if they attempt to implement it. We already pay for road repairs with our tax money above the gasoline tax. Just because some knucklehead prints something does not make it a fact. You can rest assured that the people are not going to stand for this level of privacy invasion.

      • Why not, they’ve never objected to privacy invasions before?

      • disqus_tKlEuAw2uq

        I bet they will, that state as well as CAL normally votes for these far left wing nuts and then wonder why they are losing their feedom

        I hope not.

        • Arizona Don

          We have working examples of progressive democratic results from their economic approach. Their share the wealth projects if you will, large government and extreme corruption. Detroit is the best example of large government corruption because it is about two stages more advanced then Chicago and several other cities operating under progressive “rule” for decades. Make no mistake however the state of California as well as some others perhaps like Oregon, (and many in the east) due to that progressive democrat approach are rapidly proceeding down into the same progressive abyss. No one, even cities, states or federal governments, can survive for any length of time in a socialistic society. They, as Margaret Thatcher once said, soon run out of other peoples money. The end is always the same and predictable. Yet so many are blinded by the very give away programs that will eventually destroy them.

      • ImOffendedTreatMeSpecial

        They blindly submit to the invasion of privacy caused by Google and Facebook, why wouldn’t they also blindly accept this?

  • Mark

    When we arise from the ashes of Judeo-Luciferian globalism, our rights need to be more clearly enumerated—the right to travel and the right to privacy among those that need to be enumerated and protected.

    We also need to end “sovereign immunity.” Politicians, bureaucrats, judges, and armed enforcers must be severely punished for any and every violation of our rights.

        • disqus_tKlEuAw2uq

          and how many lives have they cost? tell both sides of the story. I used seat belts until the asses told me that I had to and have not used one sence

          • Mort

            You tell me how many lives seat belts cost. During my 20s and 30s (well before seat belts were required) I always drove small sports cars (MGs, Triumphs) and always wore a belt (Air Force pilot, lap type) and there was at least one instance were I or my passenger was REALLY GLAD we had them on. You are welcome to risk yourself all you want if it makes you feel like a hero but the evidence is that many thousands have survived serious injury or death due to a belt. In this case government is way ahead of you.

        • tomas rader

          Prove it … all progs ever give up are numbers n stats. I want to see all 13000 names and then have them prove that subjective claim. Maybe the airbag helped. The PA in me knows I can manipulate numbers and data.

          • Mort

            Prove it? You don’t believe in statistics so you probably don’t believe in science but the physics of a car crash make it obvious that seat beats work. Consider the following:

            When a crash occurs, occupants are still traveling at the vehicle’s original speed at the moment of impact. Just after the vehicle rapidly comes to a complete stop, unbelted occupants slam into the steering wheel, windshield, or other parts of the vehicle’s interior. Seat belts are effective in reducing fatalities and injuries caused by this second collision, or “human collision,” when the vehicle’s occupants hit some part of the vehicle interior or other occupants. Seat belts provide the greatest protection against occupant ejection. In fatal crashes in 1995, only two percent of restrained passenger car occupants were ejected, compared to 25 percent of unrestrained occupants. Ejection from a vehicle is one of the most injurious events that can happen to a person in a crash. Three-quarters of the occupants who are ejected from passenger cars are killed.

            I had a friend die because he was not wearing his belt when his VW was involved in an under 20 MPH head on crash.

          • tomas rader

            I’ve known friends that were burned and drowned because they panicked and couldn’t get belt off. They make a knife for that now … how serious is that when u can profit marketing a seatbelt cutting knife (must happen a lot huh). Assuming with the inertia u keep your head about you. People HAVE been thrown clear even out of windshield and lived. This is nanny state bs. I’ll take my chances in life and suffer the consequences … you do the same mommy.

          • tomas rader

            Your friend should have bought heavy metal american … why soccer moms transport the kids in SUVs and pay extra for fuel costs … safety. Wait till we have prius and other fiberglass aluminum crap involved in crashes. Good time for funeral directors. LOL

  • I’ve had a Commercial Drivers License for a quarter of a century, and have trucked through all of the lower 48 at some point. It doesn’t take a lot of thought to realize that highways that are built to routinely carry 80,000 pound trucks aren’t going to be very affected by vehicles weighing less than 10% of that. If the highways were built like skyscrapers, they wouldn’t require anywhere near the routine rebuilding that is done. Further, if they were built to routinely carry the heaviest trucks on the road, they wouldn’t require any rebuilding at all unless they were damaged by roadbase movement, like an earthquake, which could be largely prevented by proper design that would allow the entire road to float when the roadbase became subject to the liquefaction of an earthquake.

    • Gearmoe

      Much is done by lowest bid process. People need to understand how weak most roads are. Most just meet requirements.

      • That is true, but the design of all public roads is based on the premise that there will always be future work to be done involving tearing out the old road and building new. If skyscrapers were designed with the same premise, they’d be falling down without a need for boxer cutter armed terrorists, or the demolition people who did their special effects.
        In Germany, a contract is based on the original construction and ten years of maintenance. If the road is built well enough, no maintenance is required, and the builder turns a better profit than if they designed the road to crumble, because they don’t have to spend the fixed remuneration on rework.

        • thinkalittlefirst

          If they could repair a road so it didn’t feel like an off road test track in california, they should have to ride in a car with a bottle of nitroglycerin over the repairs they just made !!! How can you have a repair patch that is 2 inches higher then the regular road, and just about breaks your ball joints and blows out your shocks, most of the repairs are much worse then the damage they were trying to fix !!!,Who trains these guys, and why dont they get fired?

          • Are you sure they are patches versus the plate tectonics that highways in certain parts of California develop in between maintenance?

        • Lumen_Kelvin

          If you really watched the movies of that one building as it began to collapse, you would have seen the blasts of explosives, going off along the standards of the building in a timed manner, thereby causing that building to begin collapsing as those charges cut a path of damage. That’s what I saw.

      • tomas rader

        Lowest bid … but union or highest labor is bacon davis act.

      • Mort

        If the road meets the contract requirements then the builder has done the job it was hired for. Only good business.

      • Blogengeezer

        Alb NM ‘Co-Con’ highway contractors built many miles of interstate ‘concrete’ highway…. minus thousands of engineer required re-bar ties between sections.

        Two problems. Concrete lobby for the materials. Cutting costs by scrimping on re-bar. Both contributed to the most wavy highway with noticeable ‘thunder bumps’ at each section.

        Bidding process in every state that depends on lobby fees and political corruption, suffers from the same problems. Note the states, counties with perpetually bad highways.

      • thinkalittlefirst

        The earmarked road repair bids would be ok if they weren’t regularly stolen for other pet projects ! But hey if the money is gone they can always find a new tax to get more of your already taxed money.You get taxed on your fuel and registration to get to work, taxed on your income, taxed when you spend your cash , oh I almost forgot, you get taxed again

      Road builders are some of the richest, most politically connected people in the States, like New Jersey and Ohio, where they have leveraged that activity into officially recognized State Sports, where the orange marker domes have become The State Flower.

    Hello Fascism, goodbye liberty. Believe it. Won’t be too much longer before the scales can’t hold more and topple with an all-out revolution for Rights and liberty.

    • I think the situation is exactly what Thomas Jefferson predicted would come to pass:

      “The spirit of the times may alter, will alter. Our rulers will become corrupt, our people careless. A single zealot may become persecutor, and better men be his victims. It can never be too often repeated that the time for fixing every essential right, on a legal basis, is while our rulers are honest, ourselves united. From the conclusion of this war we shall be going down hill. It will not then be necessary to resort every moment to the people for support. They will be forgotten, therefore, and their rights disregarded. They will forget themselves in the sole faculty of making money, and will never think of uniting to effect a due respect for their rights. The shackles, therefore, which shall not be knocked off at the conclusion of this war, will be heavier and heavier, till our rights shall revive or expire in a convulsion.”

      • Jollyjoke

    Pay-as-you-drive insurance using telematics, the technology of computers on the go communicating with central devices.
    Flo from ‘Progressive’ says it’s cool. Get it?

    As usual, it isn’t the advertised ‘use’ of this tech that is concerning, it’s the shadowy ‘ab-use’ that, at this late date, seems a certainty given the evidence lately.

    Not unreasonable to assume, in the future, that using telematics will be compulsory for the privilege of operating a motor vehicle. Should make for an interesting black market.

    • If we all wind up riding in self-driving cars, the owners of those cars will be paying for the insurance, not us. Most of them would be self-insured, making the automobile insurance industry largely redundant.

      • watchmanonthetower

        Interesting hypothesis.

        And, perhaps as an intended consequence, a slick way to succinctly transform a major industry (insurance) into another globally managed asset owned by the NWO…who will more than likely own all the SDCs, as well.


        • Most of the insurance industry is owned by unregulated banks of some kind or another, and if the premise is that banksters are running the world, they already own the insurance companies. That’s why they wrote Obamacare to take it over completely.

          • watchmanonthetower

            “That’s why they wrote Obamacare…”

            Makes sense.
            Another glimpse at the machinery that runs the worldwide leviathan that is the NWO. They may be evil; but stupid they’re not…

        • They’d work fine regardless of the presence of the power grid or not. Google’s operates off their cloud, so you wouldn’t even need to be wired. Eventually, they’d probably be available in electric versions that would maintain their own charge by charging when you aren’t on board, but petroleum is too available to go away any time soon.

    There are so many who have a degree of understanding that corruption and the desire to subjugate others in concert with greed is all our government consists of that it is not an impossible task to run the would be masters right out. Some would be egotists that would in their fear of losing their position attempt to respond with violence that they came to know so well from using to bully the people, but they would be a minor nuisance and dealt with swiftly.
    Freedom is a scary concept for many people who have never had to fend for themselves and who have no idea how fulfilling it can be to just do for yourself without a bureaucrat digging their nose into your business.
    Carpet baggers, thieves, robbers, pedophiles, muggers, rapists, murderers and assorted psychopaths are the problem, that should put into perspective. Their laws never apply to them, therefore they are never actually laws and need not be followed.

    Sad thing is that for some reason, these 5000 people in Oregon felt compelled to be the big brother guinea pigs. That or else they like having the fist of tyranny shoved up their asses every day. This is the automotive version of the electronic monitoring bracelet they use to track criminals. I’m sure once you plug it in, that’s it. If you unplug it, you will immediately get a phone call from the state asking why you unplugged it. I feel also that the state will have the ability to fry your cars computer system using this device, a remote kill switch if you will.
    I also wonder just how secure and ‘hack proof’ this technology will be?
    This ‘warn and fuzzy’ tracking system is ripe for exploitation.

    I’ll consider paying by the mile only when the government creates public transportation in my area. I live in rural Pennsylvania where if you don’t have a car you don’t work or eat. If the bureaucrats provided me with an alternative (even a lousy bus), then I could see paying extra to choose the car instead. But until then, my message to the politicians is: Up yours.

      This country has never been socialist (except for programs like Social Security and Medicare) and has been able to achieve GDP growth of over 4% only a few times. Even so, bipartisan cooperation under Clinton had us paying down the national debt at a significant rate. If only “W” hadn’t decided that cutting taxes would make him popular even though it put us back into the debt spiral, we would be much better off. Maybe after Bromback bankrupts Kansas we will all agree, trickle down isa myth.

          • Mort

            Maybe so, but the concept is NOT supported by the Republican Party. The following is from The Christian Science Monitor, hardly a leftist publication. Hope you read it, buckeroo.
            “Of all the curious rhetoric floating around both Washington and the campaign trail, the strangest may be the demand of many Republicans that Congress raise taxes for low-income working households even as it cuts taxes for the wealthy. The left has, not surprisingly, gleefully leapt on the issue. And, honestly, it seems like terrible politics for the GOP.

            But this idea is hardly new. It is a key element of various forms of consumption taxes such as the National Retail Sales Tax (including the wildly misnamed FAIR tax). It is also favored among those on the right who want to close “loopholes” to force low- and moderate-income households to pay some income tax even as they cut rates across the board—a design almost certain to favor high-income taxpayers.”

          • Clay Fitzgerald

            I read it and I’m not impressed. I have no idea of the leanings of the CSM, but then a quote of on context and not attributed to a person is worth nothing.
            BTW, I wouldn’t attribute the any credibility to what “many Republicans” may demand without the understanding exactly which taxes that may refer to. For instance I’d say that what many low income people receive from the Earned Income Tax Credit is more like a windfall because they get a better benefit than not having to pay federal income tax, but actually get more money back than what may have been withheld from wages or salaries.

I look back in recent history and I can see how each different administration (regime) since President Kennedy, has contributed to the slow demise of our nation and it makes me sick and yes, it makes me want to take up the cause to physically remove the present system of government we are currently abiding under.

    • Clay Fitzgerald

      It started long before JFK, in fact he actually got the income tax rates lowered. One can split hairs, but many believe it started when the constitutional amendment allowing a federal income tax was passed about a hundred years ago; some believe that it goes back even farther, to Lincoln, when the Civil War imposed federal authority over states’ rights.

    How can they say driving is a privilege, I’m a tax payer and all those roads and signs, and even the cops salaries are paid by the money I pay in to taxes that there supposed to be fixing the roads. Its just another politicians way of steeling more money from the tax payer. Tax, tax, tax, when is it ever going to stop. Can I buy some property and succeed from America so I don’t have to pay a million tax, sooner or later there going to tax me on wiping my butt in the morning.

    Will the people vote for this. California voted themselves a tax increase “Yes the did”.a few tears ago.

    • Rodney Steward

      Where I live, taxes have been raised 5 times, on different things, for roads, and bridges. Every time, officials got raises, and still not a road, or bridge has been fixed. If work was done, it was usually on a old back road, that wasn’t traveled much, so they could claim some kind of improvements, were made!

      • jackcandobutwont

        Because , for the left, and govt as a whole…it is NEVER enough money…if they only had this much more, they could solve ALL the world’s problems…and then they would have their utopia:

        Unstoppable government





        Always a bad idea.

  • freedixie

    They are spending a dollar to chase a dime. Typical Marxist control freaks. Taxes are paid when buying fuel. Use the money collected wisely. Don’t steal from the coffers. The government has no right, or need, to follow every move we make. This is just more usurpation of authority and more infringement of rights. This cracks open the door to another slippery slope. Next, you will need to contact the government to get “permission” to travel to a desired location. This insanity has got to stop.

  • Sharon

    They dont’t need this expensive way to track. They only need to record the number of miles on the odometer when the vehicle is inspected each year. I am totally against this tax! And definitely against being tracked to show where I go.

    • Clay Fitzgerald

      You have a point, but that includes ALL miles, even those accumulated while driving in other states or even other countries. Is that reasonable? Not if when you’re driving in other states and paying their gas/fuel tax.

    • jackcandobutwont

      What about when and or if you go outta State?? Say a rv where most if not all the miles are in other States??

      • Sharon

        That reason too. The whole tax thing is ridiculous. Especially when we pay taxes on every gallon of gas we buy. We’re already being taxed for how much we drive.

  • Lillyhammer Lip

    Now you’re talking! That would pay off the national debt several times over!

    • How would YOU propose that the state of Oregon should pay for the maintenance and improvement of its roads?

      • Bob Martin

        They can cease diverting highway money to bike & walking trails, light rail, rapid transit and public art for starters…

        • They only do that because their budgets for those other non-transportation things was cut off by recognition that is was non-transportation. All you need to do is demonstrate to them that bike & walking trails, light rail, and rapid transit have nothing to do with transportation. Public art is publically funded?

          • jackcandobutwont

            Just who pays or buy that public art?? The tooth fairy?? Or does that money come outta oabama’s stash of cash???

            The more you post, the more it confirms just how ignorant you are!!

      • Clay Fitzgerald

        How about an fee or tax billed monthly, annually or bi-annually for vehicles that don’t use gasoline, diesel, propane, etc. that’s based on the average amount of fuel tax paid in Oregon. That shouldn’t be too hard to figure out either, use simple arithmetic… the total amount of fuel tax revenue of the state divided by the number of registered motor vehicles in the state.

        • In other words, from each according to ability, to each according to need?

          • Clay Fitzgerald

            Not sure what that comment’s supposed to mean, but for those driving vehicles that don’t use fuel where a tax can be imposed, electric/plug-in hybrids, etc., it seems like a reasonable way to collect revenue that goes toward road, street and highway construction and maintenance.
            So, what’s your idea? Or do you want to have the state follow your every move and track all the miles your drive wherever you go? And to have 40% for overhead is outrageous.

          • Since most motor vehicle registrations already take note of vehicle fuel, they should divide any deficit in the state’s road maintenance equally among those who pay no fuel tax, since they have demonstrated that they have more money than sense by buying ridiculously expensive vehicles:-)

          • jackcandobutwont

            What about those using bio diesel?? where and how is that done and paid!! and cow flatulence. how is that done and paid??

          • It depends on whether you sell it or not. If not, you are clear. If so, in most states, you have to get a permit to make it, paid by the gallon produced. Cow flatulence isn’t used as a fuel, so far as I’ve heard. Do you know otherwise?

          • jackcandobutwont

            COW flatulence is methane gas…can be captured and used as a fuel source.

          • Don’t forget the odorous gases, methane being odorless. What is your state of the art method for capturing the bovine flatulence?

          • littlebit43

            Obama took in hand his pen and phone this morning. A new division of the government was formed which will employ 3 million. They shall be called Fart Catchers. They each will be issued a plastic bag and a funnel and sent to wherever there are cows to capture cow farts. The methane will be turned in and processed as fuel. There will be bonuses paid for any farts captured from OLD FARTS.

          • jackcandobutwont

            That is the best description of how all of govt works!!

      • Doski

        Does Oregon Pay for City Streets ? How about County Roads ? Will it “Share” the revenues according to the miles driven per Governing body’s jurisdiction ?
        The bottom Line here boils down to the fact that Oregon State Lawmakers want to reap the profits for “Miles Driven” regardless of what Road someone drives on. I can’t wait until the Cities and Counties responsible for building and maintaining the roads in their jurisdictions will “NEED” to pass similar measures to acquire “Their Fair Share” !
        That 1.5 cents / mile will likely be 10 cents in very short order, just to accommodate all the Jurisdictional Governments ” Fairly. Yep, that way we can ALL pay each of those jurisdictions for the miles we Don’t drive in their jurisdictions. On the brighter side, We’ll be Fiscally Raped “Equally” unless, of course, you’re driving an exempted Government vehicle.

        • If it is GPS-based, they’ll know exactly which road was driven on.

          • Doski

            TRUE, But Knowing and Sharing are NOT related unless the Fine Print and all the I’s are dotted and T’s crossed. Even then, the regulations become subject to interpretation and revision.
            Beware of the consequences which follow the allowance of the Camel’s head into the tent.

      • jackcandobutwont

        Here is a novel idea…how about the existing gas tax??

        > Tax as pct. of gas price: 13.5% (19th highest)
        > State fuel tax: 31.1 cents per gallon (14th highest)
        > Gas price: $2.31 (10th highest)

        At $2.31 per gallon, Oregon has the 10th highest average gas price, due in large part to the relatively high state fuel tax. The high price of gas is also affected by the state’s requirement that gas stations provide full-service. Oregon is one of only two states that ban self-service stations.

  • Clete Tacker

    I find one aspect of this pathetic invasion of privacy and greedy power grab hilarious. For years now the environmentalist fruitcakes have been bashing us over the head and trying to force us to drive crappy little electric cars and telling us we were fools if we didn’t drive them because we could save all kinds of money. Now that a few more people have decided to drive the electric and hybrid vehicles to save money they are hit from a different angle to extract more dollars. Now people have gone out and spent a lot of money for the electric and hybrids and are now told they are not paying their fair share. And 40 cents of every dollar goes just to “oversee” the project? Sounds like a big government program to me, expensive and inefficient. But don’t worry,they would never track your movement or collect the data unless it was for our own good because they know how to run our loves better than wet do. Sounds familiar doesn’t it, kind of like the same liberal politicians telling us it’s patriotic to pay taxes while they try and figure out ways to pay less on their own taxes. No matter how much a wacko liberal gets they will always want more, more of what everyone else has, they are never satisfied with the amount of control over the American people. Wake up people, there is not an end to their quest for for total control over your lives

  • Doski

    Wise up folks. How many Taxes have actually gone down ? The politicians ALWAYS sell their money grubbing TAX Plans as affordable to get them passed only to claim later that they Underestimated and raise the rates incrementally until those Taxes become outrageously burdensome. At 1.5 Cents/mile the tax will be approximately $1.00 / hour driven at highway speeds but as the Tax is increased to cover the “Underestimated Shortfall” it will rapidly become $5.00/ hour driven.

    Just wait until the Politicians realize the they forgot to put in their infamous Supplemental tax for “Car Pool-ers” and have to add sensors to the devices so that the “Burden” is shared Equally. Yep, we all “Need” to pay “Our Fair Share” ! Of course, in order to make sure it truly is “Equally Shared” everyone will need to be “Chipped” to Assure the Actual Driver isn’t “Over Taxed” while passengers skirt “Their Fair Share” .

    Sorry, NOT, if you are offended by my candor but even Helen Keller and Ray Charles could see where this is headed.

  • Tim Richardson

    A not inconsiderable amount of civil disobedience is going to be required here: Set up ad hoc groups to steal other groups of peoples, GPS devices, put them on trains and long-haul trucks; or just break the damned things.

    There once was a vehicle requirement in Florida called a “Safety/Emissions Inspection” back in the early 80s. Floridians fought to have it thrown out. From the time it was implemented to its demise by the voters was just over 3 years. One thing about Government Officials is that they have to go home at night. And, each morning they want to go back to their offices. When that routine is threatened by the voters, government officials start running scared.
    Oregon is a state with little industry or tourism. I just pass through to get to Washington. Many other states are in this same situation. They will have pressure placed on them when inflation of goods and services are affected. Imagine paying a mileage tax to get to the grocery store to pay $5 for a gallon of milk. That will be the last straw for even the “volunteers”.

    If you are a Property Owner, you are assessed for road Tax, by your County. When you by gasoline, you pay about 45 cents per gallon in Tax. When you buy groceries, or anything, in the County you purchase anything, you pay a tax that, in part, it a tax for Highways and Roadways. You also are taxed for the local schools, of which, 80% of that tax goes to the schools. The rest of that tax goes for county and state services which are never provided to the property owner who pays that tax. We are being taxed for Roads and Highways over 5 times from five or more methods of taxing for the same thing. Now, the gov is trying to figure out how to tax us again for the same thing. This must end, now. This is a clear attempt to tyrannize the people, as clearly printed in the “Communist Manifesto” “Restrict the travel of the people”.
    “Destroy the family as a unit”. “Regulate their Privacy”. “Make the people Dependent upon the Government”. “Tax the people on every activity they enjoy”. “License the People for every activity”. “Take away their Rights, and issue them Permissions by authority”. “Remove their rights of ownership, by taxing them for their Homes and Property”. “Issue restrictions for activity according to health and disabilities” “Change the meaning of Public Service, into Public Supervision”.

    The rope is cinching tighter and too many see nothing wrong with it. I doubt the roads will get better with this new plan – nothing our government touches makes more money – just takes more from those who have a job and now even from those who do not have money – so does this mean there will be breaks for those on food stamps and anyone living off the government – things are already free for most of them! Pretty soon the working class will be in the food lines and asking for hand outs with the likes of these kind of plans coming down the pike at us. When will those who think this is a good idea wake up and smell the stink this will cause!!??
