I, for one, would like to see this car-centric living impossibly expensive and as inconvenient as possible.
I like to see these policies implemented, it's not going to happen in North America, but we carfree people can only dream.
$20 per gallon for gasoline and diesel sounds like a good number.
However, there should be subsidies for the following:
- transportation for products (shippers)
- occupation requiring the use of automobile (contractors, landscapers, etc)
- large item deliveries
A 200% tax on every new automobile sold.
Excessive parking fees, or better yet, no parking spaces at all. I don't fancy seeing people's property parking on public road. Just think of how less land is required with there were no parking spaces.
What do you think?
