State mulls pay-by-mile gas tax in response to fuel-efficient cars

http://www.komonews.com

SEATTLE -- Cars are becoming more and more fuel-efficient, and you would think that's a good thing. But Washington state is actually losing money because of it and as a result, the state is now considering a "pay-by-mile" tax. The state predicts gas tax collected today won't add up to enough cash to pay for future road projects. Drivers of fuel-efficient cars are spending less at the pump, which means they are paying less in gas tax while driving the same amount of miles.

A quick note on states' rights

The problem is always the consolidation of power into the hands of a relative few. This problem is not alleviated via a representative democracy as the current system in the US clearly demonstrates.

The Role of Government

http://www.nv-nc.com

Over the past many decades, the federal government’s own internal debate on its responsibility has changed in a subtle but very important way. Before the change, the federal government would act in the marketplace when people believed that everybody had a right to something. Now it intervenes even when it does not believe something should be guaranteed.

Court rules HOA cannot detain speeders on private streets

http://www.jdsupra.com

The defendant HOA is governed by a board of directors. Prior to the events at issue, the board had established a security department for the development, bought vehicles for the department, fitted the vehicles with oscillating and flashing lights, radar units and audio/video recording equipment. The board adopted a speed limit of 25 mph for all the association's roads. Since violation of the Association's rules is not an "offense" justifying restraint, the plaintiff was entitled to summary judgment on his claim for false imprisonment.

Odd-Even Gas Rationing System Coming To New York City, Long Island

http://newyork.cbslocal.com

What happens if you disobey? "Those with license plates ending in an odd number will be able to buy gas on odd numbered days. Those with license plates ending in an even number will be able to buy gas on even numbered days."

Maybe if they allowed "price gouging," there wouldn't be shortages...

DOT inspection watch dog for truckers.

https://www.thedotwatchdog.com

thedotwatchdog.com looks like a very handy web site for truckers who want to know were D.O.T. is. DOT (Department of Transportation) a.k.a. truck police, are the armed tax collectors who specifically harass tuckers, landscapers and basically any one who may drive in a "commercial looking truck". I avoid DOT when ever I can, because even if everything goes well it is going to be an hour or 2 with the truck inspection.

Court OKs toll road operators detaining drivers who use large bills

http://thenewspaper.com

"The fact that a person is not free to leave on his own terms at a given moment, however, does not, by itself, mean that the person has been 'seized' within the meaning of the Fourth Amendment," the court wrote in its unsigned decision. "In Florida, a person's right and liberty to use a highway is not absolute; it may be regulated in the public interest through reasonable and reasonably executed regulations." The judges found it was reasonable for Fanueil to set regulations for use of the road -- including the types of acceptable payment.

Speed trap? There's an app for that

http://www.cbsnews.com

(CBS News) It's a code all drivers share: A flash of the high beams is a warning there's a speed trap ahead.

But when police in Florida saw one man doing it, he got slapped with a $115 speeding ticket.

His case was overturned, but in some states, it is illegal to warn other drivers there is a speed trap ahead. Arizona and Alaska forbid flashing of high beams, while the states of New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee and Virginia allow it.

http://www.care2.com

British police clashed with hundreds of cyclists for allegedly riding too close to the Olympic Opening Ceremony on Friday, reports The Guardian. Police, who used pepper spray on the crowd and arrested 182 of the cyclists, claimed that the cyclists’ presence might have disrupted the Olympics, while many of the cyclists insist they had no such intentions. After having their bicycles confiscated, the cyclists, including a 13-year-old, were handcuffed en masse and kept in concrete rooms without windows overnight due to a lack of adequate prison space.
