New Bumper Strip: Virginia Hates Hybrids
I would like to vent my ire against our Virginia politicians. They have raised the car registration fee for hybrid cars by 57 percent.
The blockheads in Richmond forget that hybrid owners pay a premium for a hybrid and are taxed on this amount (35 percent for a Ford Escape). They are right that we don’t buy as much gas, but what about a Honda Civic? Why not take an educated look at the issue? Why not tax by use and wear? Like mileage and weight?
I have started my rebellion against the state. I will not renew my vanity plates on two cars. I will request new plates every year and I am creating a new bumper sticker for Virginia — “Virginia Hates Hybrids.”
