Motorists' habits spur call for tax increases

The reason I'm posting it here is because of the similarities between this and the discussion we had some years ago when the studios sued ReplayTV because they provided a way for users to skip commercials. We users responded with the idea that technology marches on and as ways are found to bypass a business' obsolete and monopolistic practices, too bad. Live with it.

So what's going to happen now? Following the studios practice, hybrid and fuel-efficient cars should be illegal.

(yeah, it's not quite the same. I can live without commercial skip, but I can't live without roads and bridges. Still pisses me off though.)
