Like most government agencies, the Department of Transportation is trying to figure out how to maintain state roadways with less funding.

In a proposal submitted to the Department of Administration last week, Transportation Secretary Mike Gottlieb is asking lawmakers to consider a number of ways to address aging infrastructure and projects to accommodate greater numbers of vehicles.

Included in his suggestions is the requirement that vehicle owners list their odometer readings when they register their cars each year “to give the agency more data to better study how much money it could raise from such a fee,” a story at jsonline.com reads.

So, we wanted to know if you think the state should charge drivers a fee based on how much they drive each year.
