I thought I already did

Fuel duty is a massive illiberal tax that affects the poor more than the rich. It also, from an environmental point of view, penalises those who emit most carbon. Even if you think that is worth bothering, considering how little difference to global temperatures all experts say global warming will make.

Anyway, fuel duty is a form of pay-as-you-go disincentive to driving. So what possible reason can there be to charge people using spy satellites?

Could it be to penalise those who drive more? Could it be to make data collection more simple? Could it be yet another example of socialist policies being used to advance erosion of civil liberties, freedom and individual liberty (which cars undeniably provide) all in the name of environ-Mentalism?

Erm, yes.
