there's always congressional motors to fall back on
They'd have a hell of a time governing this. How are you supposed to substantiate it? Do you know how many cars there are? Unless they throw in a blanket tax, this is just a logistic impossibility.
I haven't heard these commercials for a little while, but some were running on the radio here locally not long ago. It was for car insurance where your rates were determined by the number of miles you drive. As much as I hate to admit it, I might actually make out under a system like that. My car is 8 years old (bought it new in 2003) and only has ~64K miles on it.
As for GPS tracking systems being installed on modern automobiles, I heard the "plug-in" for the device already exists in any vehicle after about '98 or '99. I have not personally researched it, or independently verified it for myself... I've just heard it before. Would love to ask a mechanic if they know anything about it.
BTW Washington State had looked into doing this a couple years ago. didn't go anywhere if i remember correctly
Stamp Act anyone?
I really don't understand why they keep trying to be so creative with these taxes. Pass a sales tax and get it over with. No exemptions, no exceptions. 1% across the board. You buy a million dollar house? You pay $10,000 in sales tax. You buy a $10,000 car, you pay $100 in sales tax. That's not going to kill anybody.
Wait, I have an idea. Let's round up the illegals from Mexico and charge Mexico to have them returned alive. Otherwise, we deport them to Yemen.
