I am for the freedom of choices that we all have in this country. In my opinion, you cannot tell me what to do if I am not hurting anyone else. If you want to buy a gas guzzling hog of a vehicle, Great. I would not buy such a car, I have my Lemon and I am very happy with it, and wouldn't trade it for any other car right now. But to penalize everyone because you want everyone to buy an efficient vehicle is imposing your opinion and your choice on others. If you want to make a difference, like Kitaimdao said, mandate changes at the automotive manufacturing level. Kinda like catalytic converters, people complain for a while, then it quiets down. It just takes time to adjust to the change, and usually, like the catalytic converter, it's for the best.
