Plus, look for differential taxes by type of road used (you'd pay different taxes for each municipality). Also, speeders could expect their fines to be mailed to them automatically.
I'm wondering how enforcement would work--what's to stop a driver from disconnecting power to the unit or wrapping it in grounded aluminum foil? I suppose police cars could have electronic interrogators to check the operation of the units--no "Polo" in answer to McGruff's "Marco" equals a heavy fine.
I would want to add a special tax for anyone who left their turn signal on for more than 15 seconds.
