We’ve been trying to get people interested in green transport, including electric cars, for a very long time. This can be done in many ways including free rego, free parking, government subsidy, and the right to use bus and transit lanes for electric car drivers.

Indeed European and North American electric car drivers enjoy just such incentives. Australia is not only behind the 8-ball, it is behind an iron curtain when it comes to electric car incentives.

In the latest proposal, several state governments propose additional taxes on drivers of electric cars. They claim that these drivers do no contribute to the upkeep of roads etc. These are the drivers who use tollways, and park at council meters.
