OLYMPIA, Wash. – Drivers of electric cars may have left the gas pump behind, but there's one expense they may not be able to shake: paying to maintain the roads.

After years of urging residents to buy fuel-efficient cars and giving them tax breaks to do it, Washington state lawmakers are considering a measure to charge them a $100 annual fee — what would be the nation's first electric car fee.

State lawmakers grappling with a $5 billion deficit are facing declining gas tax revenue, which means less money to maintain or improve roads.

"Electric vehicles put just as much wear and tear on our roads as gas vehicles," said Democratic state Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, the bill's lead sponsor. "This simply ensures that they contribute their fair share to the upkeep of our roads."

Other states are trying to find solutions to the same problem, as cars become more fuel-efficient and, now, don't use any gas at all.

In Oregon, lawmakers are considering a bill to charge drivers of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles based on the number of miles they drive. In Mississippi, lawmakers briefly considered a similar plan. In Texas, significant opposition scuttled an electric vehicle fee.

In Washington state, some electric car drivers and lawmakers are against the fee, saying they prefer paying based on how much they actually drive.

"The Legislature saw electric vehicles are coming and thought, why not just put a fee on them?" said Dean West, an electric vehicle owner who expects to receive a pre-ordered Leaf — Nissan's new, battery-powered sedan — this summer.

"I'm always in favor of a user fee," he said. "The more you use it, the more you pay."

Plug In America, a California-based electric car advocacy group, has come out against the proposed flat fee and has urged the state to consider one based on odometer readings that owners would self-report each year.

"Electric vehicle drivers certainly want to pay their fair share," said Jay Friedland, the group's legislative director. "The danger you get into is if you treat electric vehicles in some radically different way than you treat the rest."

Of course, such use-based fees could end up costing drivers more.

Washington's 37.5-cents-per-gallon fuel tax costs the average driver about $200 a year, transportation officials say. That's equivalent to driving roughly 12,000 miles in a vehicle that gets 23 mpg.

That tax is added onto the total gasoline purchase, and is not dependent on the price of gas.

Supporters say the electric vehicle fee would raise hundreds of thousands of dollars a year to support the state's public highway system.

In a report released last month, officials estimated that transportation revenues would decrease $25 million between the current biennium and the 2011-2013 budget period, largely due to dwindling gas tax collections.

That decline has coincided with improved vehicle mileage and a drop-off in revenues from the last major round of statewide tax increases, more than five years ago, leaving lawmakers scrambling for solutions, said Sen. Dan Swecker, one of the co-sponsors of proposed fee.

"So the question is how do you account for those trends and begin to capture revenue that reflects the actual usage of the road?" said the Republican lawmaker, who estimated he pays about $400 a year in gas taxes for his Toyota Camry. "Our state doesn't change very fast. But we thought the $100 fee was a place to start, so let's start there."

Tracy Woodard, Nissan Motor Co.'s director of government affairs for North America, said her company is neutral on electric surcharge legislation being considered in various states. She called for a larger discussion at the federal level of how to deal with reductions in gas tax revenues.

"Obviously, we don't like to see barriers put up to getting electric cars on the road," Woodard said. "But we understand people need to pay their fair share for using the roads."

An Oregon bill would charge drivers of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles up to 1.43 cents for each mile they drive, beginning with cars from the 2014 model year. It would cost about $172 per year for a car driven 12,000 miles — about the same as the gas tax paid for a vehicle that gets 21 mpg.

The measure is scheduled for its next committee vote Monday.

Use-based fees have generated their own debate.

The Texas Legislature recently put the brakes on an attempt to establish an electric vehicle mileage fee pilot program, after encountering significant opposition. The plan's backers said they hoped to try again in a couple of years.

Oregon previously experimented with using GPS devices to monitor and report the number of miles driven inside the state. Privacy advocates denounced it, fearing the government could use them to track drivers.

Mississippi lawmakers briefly considered an annual usage-based tax on electric vehicles, but the bill died in committee in February. The tax would have been equal to one-half cent per mile for the total miles traveled during the previous year, as indicated by the vehicle's odometer.

In Washington, Haugen said, she supports the idea of a use-based fee but thinks it's too logistically complex to undertake right now. Her bill would automatically expire if the state adopts such an approach in the future.

The bill's supporters acknowledge that it sends mixed signals on an emerging market that the state has tried to nurture. Washington currently waives the sales tax on electric vehicles, while the federal government provides an income tax credit of up to $7,500 to buyers.

Haugen and others say an electric vehicle fee is one of the few viable solutions to help offset lost gas tax revenues. In the 2010 fiscal year, there were just over 1,300 electric-powered vehicles registered with the Department of Licensing.

If passed, the bill would go into effect March 2012 and generate an es...

I'm all for alternative fuels and becoming less dependent on foreign oil but it seems to me electric is just a waste of time and energy.  We already have a weak and overworked electric grid with roaming brownouts every time more than 5 million people turn on their air conditioners.  Now, lets plug in 5 million electric cars twice a day for charging and expect to save the environment, don't we have to burn more coal in order to produce more electricity? Wait.........maybe we can use nuclear energy...  These people are idiots their solution actually brings up more problems.  I think the Elites want us driving electric because we can only go 150 miles away on an 8 hour charge, makes it easier to keep tabs on us.

That's how things stay the same - do what we've always done. Change the thinking process - change how we get electricity and it's plentiful and FREE. That opens exciting new doors to changing the world.

Probably the worst things about electric cars is their batteries.

However the reason why I posted the article was to show no matter what alternative energy sources comes along it gets taxed. In this case not only does it get taxed as a normal car but also as a specific tax. Tax the air we breath is next.

New Fed GPS Trackers Found on SUV
« Reply #4 on: November 08, 2011, 09:38:49 PM »

The second of two GPS trackers found recently on the vehicle of a young man in California.

As the Supreme Court gets ready to hear oral arguments in a case Tuesday that could determine if authorities can track U.S. citizens with GPS vehicle trackers without a warrant, a young man in California has come forward to Wired to reveal that he found not one but two different devices on his vehicle recently. The 25-year-old resident of San Jose, California, says he found the first one about three weeks ago on his Volvo SUV while visiting his mother in Modesto, about 80 miles northeast of San Jose. After contacting Wired and allowing a photographer to snap pictures of the device, it was swapped out and replaced with a second tracking device. A witness also reported seeing a strange man looking beneath the vehicle of the young man’s girlfriend while her car was parked at work, suggesting that a tracking device may have been retrieved from her car.
Then things got really weird when police showed up during a Wired interview with the man.

The young man, who asked to be identified only as Greg, is one among an increasing number of U.S. citizens who are finding themselves tracked with the high-tech devices.

The Justice Department has said that law enforcement agents employ GPS as a crime-fighting tool with “great frequency,” and GPS retailers have told Wired that they’ve sold thousands of the devices to the feds.

But little is known about how or how often law enforcement agents use them. And without a clear ruling requiring agents to obtain a “probable cause” warrant to use the devices, it leaves citizens who may have only a distant connection to a crime or no connection at all vulnerable to the whimsy of agents who are fishing for a case.

The invasive technology, for example, allows police, the FBI, the Drug Enforcement Administration and other agencies to engage in covert round-the-clock surveillance over an extended period of time, collecting vast amounts of information about anyone who drives the vehicle that is being tracked.

“A person who knows all of another’s travels can deduce whether he is a weekly church goer, a heavy drinker, a regular at the gym, an unfaithful husband, an outpatient receiving medical treatment, an associate of particular individuals or political groups — and not just one such fact about a person, but all such facts,” wrote U.S. Appeals Court Judge Douglas Ginsburg in a recent ruling that the Supreme Court will be examining this week to determine if warrants should be required for use with trackers.

Greg says he discovered the first tracker on his vehicle after noticing what looked like a cell phone antenna inside a hole on his back bumper where a cable is stored for towing a trailer. The device, the size of a mobile phone, was not attached to a battery pack, suggesting the battery was embedded in its casing.



The first GPS tracker found was slipped into a fabric sleeve, containing magnets, and on the underside of the vehicle in the wheel well of the spare tire.

A week later when he was back in San Jose, he checked the device, and it appeared to have been repositioned slightly on the vehicle to make it less visible. It was placed on the underside of the car in the wheel well that holds a spare tire.
Greg, a Hispanic American who lives in San Jose at the home of his girlfriend’s parents, contacted Wired after reading a story published last year about an Arab-American citizen named Yasir Afifi who found a tracking device.... Greg wanted to know what he should do with the device.
Afifi believed he was being tracked by authorities for six months before a mechanic discovered the device on his car when he took it into a garage for an oil change. He apparently came under surveillance after the FBI received a vague tip from someone who said Afifi might be a threat to national security. Afifi has filed a suit against the government, asserting that authorities violated his civil liberties by placing the device on his vehicle without a warrant and without suspicion of a crime.

Intel to take the wheel in connected-car future

Intel to take the wheel in connected-car future
15 March 2012

That David Hasselhoff, always so ahead of the curve. It’s exciting. Inevitable. Perhaps a bit disturbing.

And, most importantly for investors, it promises to be lucrative. No, not the Hoff’s next world tour.

We’re talking about the connected car, much like the one envisioned in his hit 1980s TV show Knight Rider.

Yes, the trend of stuffing as much high-tech gadgetry into new cars as possible is here to stay, distracted teenagers be damned.

So what if more and more drivers put lives at risk as they retweet and “like” their way through traffic.

With an increasing focus on this part of the business from the likes of Ford, General Motors and the rest of the manufacturers, there’s plenty of money to be made.

Ford calls for connectivity in easing gridlock

And Brian Sozzi, chief equities analyst for NBG Productions, says Intel is where the savvy investor should consider parking his or her money.

“Not a ton of love for the stock,” he explained. But that could be about to change.

“What was once a novelty is now becoming a must have feature in an automobile; no cool functionality equals the risk of lost sales,” he wrote in a note on Thursday.

Of course, as Sozzi pointed out, Apple is bound to steal headlines eventually.

The iCar, or something along those lines, will likely emerge to set a new bar for the auto industry, if the iPad and iPhone are any indication.

With that, several others will “go along for the ride,” like Broadcom and Corning.

But Intel is the one worth watching right now, Sozzi said.

The chip maker recently opened an automotive research center in Germany and established a $100 million fund to support technology and business tied to the connected car.

“I want a company in on the ground floor luring fresh, young talent into an industry that will require outside-the-box thinking and speed to market,” he said.

It doesn’t hurt that the stock is trading at 10 times forward earnings and pays out a 3% dividend.

“Since the bringing of our digital lives into the car is still in the infant stages, the room to profit from identifiable winners is attractive in that valuations don’t reflect future earnings potential,” Sozzi said.

Are drivers ready for Big Brother car insurance plans?

By John Brandon

Published April 24, 2012
FoxNews.com

While there is a relatively slim chance that you’ll be sideswiped by a Buick on your way to work in the morning, it happens and can be expensive when it does.

But, as with any investment, you’re playing the odds when you pick an insurance plan and pay your premium. And so are the insurance companies. They spin the dice every time you start your car.

Now, a new survey suggests good drivers might be willing to stack the odds in their favor, even if it means having Big Brother on board every time they go for a spin.

UK-based insurance aggregator GoCompare.com found that 92 percent of drivers surveyed said insurance premiums should be based on how they drive; and 97 percent said good drivers should get better insurance.

This “pay-as-you-drive” model is already available in the United States through the Progressive Insurance SnapShot device and helps the insurance company hedge its bets, while rewarding good drivers for actually being good drivers, not just lucky ones.

The question is whether insurance companies will eventually require the devices for all policyholders, and if drivers will be ready to give up their privacy for a break on insurance. Several auto experts weighed in on the issue, and all agreed on one thing: vehicle tracking is here to stay...(cont.)

U.S. orders airlines to replace cockpit displays on 1,300 Boeing airplanes

U.S. orders airlines to replace cockpit displays on 1,300 Boeing airplanes
30 September 2014
, (Reuters)
http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/10/01/us-boeing-faa-idUSKCN0HQ2TH20141001

The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration is requiring airlines to replace cockpit displays on more than 1,300 Boeing Co (BA.N) airplanes to avoid interference from Wi-Fi and cellular devices.

Airlines will need to replace certain cockpit display units made by Honeywell International Inc (HON.N) used on Boeing's 737 and 777 jets within five years, according to an FAA document. (bit.ly/1qTpOYb)

The FAA said the display units were susceptible to interference from Wi-Fi frequencies. Independent tests conducted by the agency and Boeing both showed blanking on the screens when Wi-Fi devices were used near them.

The displays are also susceptible to transmissions from mobile phones, weather radar and mobile satellite communications, the FAA said.

Honeywell spokesman Steve Brecken said no display units had blanked in-flight due to Wi-Fi interference.

"The only know occurrence was during a developmental test conducted on the ground.

We worked with Boeing and addressed any concerns in 2012 with new display hardware," he said.

The display units provide crucial flight information including airspeed, altitude and navigation information, and cost thousands of dollars each.

Replacing all the units is expected to cost airlines nearly $14 million, according to the FAA document.

"Boeing made these recommendations to operators in November 2012. The FAA's directives make them mandatory," Boeing spokesman Miles Kotay said.

A number of airlines and Honeywell asked the FAA to delay or reduce the effects of the directive, but the regulator said the move was necessary to avoid loss of information during take-offs or landings, which could result in "loss of airplane control at an altitude insufficient for recovery."


… so they can all be flown en mass into Manhattan remotely controlled. ;)

Mercedes, VW to Thwart Google’s Car Inroads in Car Data

Mercedes, VW to Thwart Google’s Car Inroads in Car Data
30 October 2014
, by Elisabeth Behrmann (Bloomberg)
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/print/2014-10-30/mercedes-vw-to-thwart-google-s-car-inroads-in-car-data.html

Volkswagen AG (VOW) and Mercedes-Benz called on fellow automakers to establish separate platforms for data on vehicle use to avoid handing over sensitive customer information to Google Inc. (GOOGL)

“We seek connection to Google’s data systems but we still want to be the masters of our own cars,” Volkswagen Chief Executive Officer Martin Winterkorn, said today at an industry conference in Munich.

“Potential conflict arises around making data available.”

With consumers increasingly expecting seamless connectivity, automakers are making more Internet services available in their vehicles as well as outfitting cars with systems that allow them to communicate with one another.

Google as well as Apple Inc. (AAPL) see in-car systems as an opportunity to expand, offering systems such as Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto to connect with people while they’re driving.

“It’s very good” that automakers are discussing their own systems for processing and storing car data to avoid becoming dependent on “third parties,”

Dieter Zetsche, CEO of Mercedes-Benz parent Daimler AG (DAI), said, speaking alongside Winterkorn in a discussion at the event.

“That’ll boost our position when working with Google.”

Google is seeking to move beyond providing an in-car interface and mapping services to automakers.

The Internet giant developed an egg-shaped driverless car, indicating it could one day compete head-on with vehicle manufacturers.

Lacking a steering wheel and a brake pedal, Google’s car is more like a transport pod.

The vision runs counter to traditional auto companies that emphasize the comfort and pleasure of driving.

“Google tries to accompany people throughout their day, to generate data and then use that data for economic gain,” said Zetsche.

“It’s at that point where a conflict with Google seems pre-programmed. That’s where we need to negotiate.”

Automakers Agree on Guarding Car Computers From Hacking
13 November 2014
, by Jeff Plungis (Bloomberg)
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/print/2014-11-13/automakers-agree-on-guarding-car-computers-from-hacking.html

Excerpt:

U.S. trade groups representing the largest automakers for the first time agreed to privacy protections that may prevent hackers from gaining access to increasingly computerized cars.

The accord, to be announced today, calls for heightened security for information such as driver location and behavior, according to the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and the Association of Global Automakers, Washington-based groups whose members include General Motors Co. (GM) and Toyota Motor Corp. (7203)

“As modern cars not only share the road but will in the not-too-distant future communicate with one another, vigilance over the privacy of our customers and the security of vehicle systems is an imperative,” John Bozella, president and chief executive officer of Global Automakers, said in a statement.

The threat from hackers is becoming more urgent as vehicles are increasingly connected to the Internet.

The possibility of compromised systems prompted the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to establish an office to work on vehicle cybersecurity last year.

Disruption of car-to-car communications -- designed to prevent accidents -- could result in crashes, according to security specialists.

So could efforts by hackers to take control of moving cars.

Google Sees Automated Flight Going ‘All the Way’ to Airliners
5 May 2015
, by Thomas Black (Bloomberg)
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-05-05/google-sees-automated-flight-going-all-the-way-to-airliners

Excerpt:

The chief of Google Inc.’s experimental cargo-drone program wants to see automated flight go beyond pilotless planes and extend to commercial air travel.

Just as automation has proved its worth in factories by removing tedious work from employees’ hands, flying can be made safer once aircraft aren’t designed around the need for humans at the controls, according to Dave Vos, who leads Google’s Project Wing.

“Let’s take unmanned all the way,” Vos said Tuesday in Atlanta during a panel discussion at the annual conference of the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International. “That’s a fantastic future to aim for.”

Transitioning airliners to robotic supervision would be a leap beyond Google’s research into fields such as self-driving cars.

While pilots already rely on computerized control systems and navigation aids, planes move in three dimensions, not just two as do motor vehicles.

That adds complexity -- and risk -- to any technology that would replace humans in the cockpit.

Vos, a former Rockwell Collins Inc. executive and holder of a doctorate from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, didn’t give a timeline for his vision beyond saying he expects to see such aircraft in his lifetime.

Germany’s air-traffic control agency suggested last month that the aviation industry should consider systems to let ground-based operators take over during inflight emergencies.

That would be a step toward preventing crashes like the March 24 disaster in which investigators suspect the co-pilot of slamming the plane into the French Alps.

Driving was fun for the first million miles. Now I'm over it.  Bring on  the AI drivers.

Of course you soon realize that if a nerd says 'Joyride' he or she actually means a joy ride and not 'Joyride' as in 'reckless driving in a stolen car'. LOlz

Ya I was wondering how that software was so easily hacked. The Sooper Goobersmints are going to fix it.

Sens. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) introduced a bill Tuesday directing federal regulators to set security standards for vehicles, after Markey’s office published a report earlier this year finding that nearly all cars could be vulnerable to hacking.

I just passed a Dodge 300 on the interstate that was on fire. Looked like a brand new car, had me thinking. Everyone was able to get out safely but the car melted the asphalt.
