    if this policy takes effect in the US, watch for people to start building their own roads.

    What a horrible idea. This does not seem fair at all. I don't see how you would know if they screwed you. Most people don't keep track of how many miles they drive to check and see if the bill is right. Also, they would probably come up with some BS about an additional tax and how the rates just went up and blah blah blah. Just a bunch of socialist crap.

    I know I posted a topic about this isssue, but I don't understand it fully. Could someone dumb it down for me and explain to me this proposal and why it would be bad.

    Yeah, and installing the chips in motor vehicles will prove to be inherently problematic. Why not just save time and trouble, and install them in the drivers? Just to smooth the way, you understand.
