EV owners

Starting next year, Washington state EV owners will have to pay $100 per year for road improvements. Since they are not buying gas and not paying gas taxes but still using the same roads, the government felt it was fair to ask them to pay.

If they were paying gas taxes they would probably pay around $200 a year.

What do you think of this? Fair or not?
