Here is more ranting from another old man. Please don’t do anymore stories about Richie Rich driving around for free in his $85,000 Tesla model S car. Especially the one about going from Vancouver, British Columbia, to San Ysidro for zero petro dollars.
What about road taxes? We all pay road taxes if we buy gasoline. How do you think the roads get fixed? The little road fairy comes out at 3 a.m. with a bucket of asphalt and fixes potholes for free?
Try driving around on farmers fuel (red dye), get caught and see what happens. Not pretty. What about me? I will continue to buy gasoline, pay road taxes and drive the wheels off my $1,200 beater. When it dies, I will go get another $1,200 beater.
