No driving to work then?There's no reason that taxation revenue streams have to remain attached to driving. There are plenty of other places where money can (and should) be raised instead. Per mile charging could be applied to commercial vehicles only as they're the ones profiting from the infrastructure.
To profit from your employers wages they pay through profit?
However, I agree, taxing vehicles doesn't have to be the de facto form of raising revenue, but I don't see any government thinking outside of the box on the issue.
Personally, I think we should all pay more tax regardless, a flat amount dependent on earnings, rather than frivolous ones here and there based upon consumption.
