Default Indiana Penalty for Hybrids

Indiana in their infinite wisdom decided Hybrid owners are not paying their fair share of road tax because they get such great mileage, so ALL hybrids have to pay an additional $50 every year at registration time.

Problem is they didn't do ANY research or they would know that a 2009 GM Hybrid still get less mileage than a typical new gasoline car.
Also how about the owner of a 2018 Silverado "Hybrid" that is rated 16 city, 21 highway?

Both instances more than pay their fair share of road tax thru fuel purchases.

Gotta love politicians

That is ridiculous..When you call your state representative tell him to get an addendum written into the bill that excludes Hybrid "TRUCKS" my average over the approx 5000 miles that I have had this Tahoe is 17.1mpg. You are just dealing with what is known in politics as unintended consequences, they might fix it if it comes to their attention. Note: a donation to their next election campaign will probably go a long way towards making your voice heard.

I wrote to all 8 sponsors of the bill last year when they were in session with no changes made.
