I get charged at the same rate as do semi's. $22 for the car????? Their explanation is that they go by the number of axles.
So if your towing your car on a dolly is it even more? Another axle to count.

Here in BC, we has some pretty pricey fuel taxes many of which are to pay for road maintenance, transit etc. Problem is that money from the Road tax goes into a pot called General Revenue and then gets spent on other unrelated stuff. The roads are generally not in bad condition but we still end up paying tolls on new bridges and things like that which irks because that is what the road taxes on fuel are supposed to be paying for.

I am guessing part of the problem is that there is no accountability in how the collected taxes and tolls are spent. How much goes to overhead, other programs, or general mismanagement? No one checks, no one asks, no one cares, so the tolls and taxes just keep on going up. I have yet to pay a toll but then I live and travel out west. I also prefer no interstate roads if possible. When I donate money I check on line to see how they spend their money, good luck trying to track down state and fed taxes and tolls expenditures.

I guess that depends on how much they go up. I do get tired of Fed, State and local governments always having their hand out for some new "crisis". Where does all the money go?

No, they only count the axles that are on the ground, so the one up on the dolly does not count.

We are all overtaxed.

If you use the road you need to pay somehow.

Their wheels also cause wear and tear, no different than a regular car.

The free ride electrics are now getting needs to stop.

We are also paying for the same road twice! Our taxes built it and were supposed to maintain it.

Now they want us to pay again to drive on it?

Ridiculous, but I guess I will pay the price, because I prefer limited access highways.

I don't think any of us like to pay tolls, but many, not all, toll roads re better maintained than non-toll roads. That all costs money and if we want good roads we have to pay for them. There was a time when all gas taxes and other road taxes were dedicated for all road maintenance and improvement. I think that is a state by state decision and some states may still function that way. Tolls are going to be more of a reality in the whole US as there is more pressure on states and the fed to provide services and keep costs down.
