    I've also wondered why there aren't insurance companies

    Most insurance co will offer a discount for having a tracking device in both commercial and passenger vehicles.
    A solution to the additional tax on EV is to replace the standard "road tax" on fossil fuels with a "black box" connected to the state. Then they can just send you a monthly bill.

    Can you say "1984"?

    A tracking device is available

    Thatís not the point. EV's are using electricity. We all pay taxes and surcharges on the electricity we consume. If the state, any state, is concerned about road taxes not being paid by EV owners, they should have the electricity companies contribute the additional taxes collected from EV owners to compensate for the taxes not collected from the loss gasoline sales

    Taxing electric and hybrid

    If you try to walk I will tax your feet.... cause I'm the tax man.
    They giveíth away with incentives (tax credits) and takeíth away with taxes.
    When will those idiots disengage from the large corporations that control them. Those idiots are nothing but puppets of Big Oil, and the governments that support the terrorists who attacked us on 9/11. The same governments that have killed thousands of our citizens and well as millions of their own people.

    When will those idiots ever learn, and let America once and for all be independent of those murderous corporations and shady kingdoms and dictatorships
