From The Seattle Times:
Owners of electric cars in Washington state don’t buy gasoline or pay gas taxes, but they’re soon going to be hit with a $100 fee to own the battery-operated cars.
A section of Washington state law that takes effect [on Feb 1, 2013] will require electric-car owners to pay a $100 annual fee for road and highway improvements, intended to compensate for the gas taxes they no longer pay.
Part of me wants to giggle with malice and schadenfreude.
Part of me wants to dress up like an Indian and start tossing electric cars into Boston Harbor (or Puget Sound, as the case may be).
