#46 – Fees to Force Us Out of our Cars

Lots of people are moving to our beautiful state, which isn’t surprising given all that we have to offer. But one thing that will be an unwanted welcome gift is the new pro-rated taxes and fees if someone doesn’t register their vehicle in the allotted time. Over the next 5 years, the state is expected to collect over 28 million dollars in new fees. People should register their cars on time, but when Colorado is one of the most expensive places to live, this just makes it worse. From failing to expand roads to increasing fees, Jared Polis wants to make sure you give up the freedom to drive and walk or bike to work instead—something that is just not feasible in many parts of our beautiful state.
