Nevada’s VMT ‘black box’ hits a pothole

It’s Vegas. It happens.
You and your buddies make a big bet. You put your share in. Then, they don’t.
This from the Las Vegas Sun
State transportation officials have lost their partners in a search for an alternative to the fuel tax.
Days after the Las Vegas Sun reported the Nevada Transportation Department had developed a prototype device to track vehicles’ mileage and routes, the Washoe County and Southern Nevada regional transportation commissions said they will not fund the second and third phases of the study.
Why? What else. It’s the economy again. Read the story.
Interesting poll on the story page. It asks, “Would you support usage of a device to track vehicles and charge based on the distance traveled?”
