This actually seems like a pretty fair idea in theory. You pay for your usage. But I have to wonder what exactly those in our current administration would be planning to do with the ability to track every car on the road.

The systems can be designed to know which state you’re driving in. They can even charge you more for driving during the weekday rush hour.

“What you’re doing is turning the road system into a public utility just like water or electric at home. The more you use, the more you pay,” . . .
