I have already contacted all my Senators and Representative on this. Only a large outcry will stop this.

My take on it is the government will be tracking you and you will be forced to drive less and less by raising the tax until you cannot afford it. This is about those environmental nuts running the show. You will be forced not to drive for the sake of the planet( which is in fine shape). It is war on your car. Enjoy you new Camaro as long as you don't drive it.
