San Diego Looks To Force The Peasants Out Of Their Fossil Fueled Vehicles

Well, actually, not just fossil fueled, but, all privately owned vehicles

San Diego wants to tax people out of their cars and into public transportation

San Diego County’s Regional Transportation Agency’s (SANDAG) latest transportation plan is designed to make driving so expensive that you succumb to public transportation. In addition to the current gas tax and registration fees, SANDAG’s plan adds three new half-cent sales tax increases, over 800 miles of San Diego County freeway lanes converted to toll lanes, and a mileage tax for every mile driven to pay for their $165 billion public mass transit plan.

SANDAG’s new plan refuses to build the road improvements promised in their last plan but will continue to tax us until 2048 to pay for them.

SANDAG’s finance plan states, “Charging fees for the transportation infrastructure that people use—for example, charging users for each mile they drive on the highway—can change travel behavior.”

It’s a bait and switch — freeway dollars, gas tax dollars, and registration fees promised for road improvements instead pay for costly public mass transit projects that less than 3% of the public uses.

And, this will hurt the poor the most, followed by the middle class. The Elites won’t have a problem, as they’re rich and can still travel in their private vehicles. The rest will have to take public transit, walk, or bike. This will drive companies like Lyft and Uber out of the area, along with food delivery, taking money out of people’s pockets, and causing problems with restaurants, driving many out of business. Want to order stuff from Amazon and such? You can bet there will be a premium on delivery.

But, remember, this is all about Science, not about Government controlling the behavior of the peasants.
