@FallsChurch; NOVA get the ability to tax itself more, and will see more money -- eventually. Sure, more money is also going to the rest of the state as well. I'm sorry, that is the nature of being part of state. go join WV is you disagree...;-)

And in terms of a hybrid/Hummer distiction, I am fairly sure the purchaser of a hummer would pay nothing -- that is the nature of used car sales. IN any case, it goes back to use. Is any regulation like this -- rather than a more direct tax - the most efficient way to regulate use -- no. But I'd reckon that most Prius are being used more than most Hummers these days...

You're leaving aside the weight issue, which is one I could get behind more, but i'm not sure a hybrid SUV is much better than a hummer is damanging roads.

Hybrid cars don't pollute? Amazing. I might say that about electric cars since they displace the pollution, but a prius still has a combustion engine.
