There is a simple way to deal with this problem. Repeal federal fuel taxes. Let the states fund their own highways. I live in Michigan, which is one of the states known as “donor states”, meaning we get less transportation money back than what we send to Washington. We would be better off keeping the money, and we wouldn’t have to deal with federal interference. On the state level, fuel taxes are down as well because of the aforementioned problems. I think the solution is to fund highways from the general fund, since all citizens benefit from roads. Milage-based and GPS tracking schemes are anathema to free Americans!
