Using Smart Phones To Tax Drivers On Miles Driven

A new pilot program to use smartphones to tax drivers on the miles they drive is up for discussion.

Due to hybrid cars, Oregon's gas tax isn't bringing in the funds like it used to and the Oregon Department of Transportation is looking to technology.

Drivers would be taxed based on the miles recorded with the new app.

O-DOT will present the idea in a public meeting next Tuesday, at the O-DOT White City office.
