A road hazard tax would not be a bad thing. Drive something that is dangerous to other road users, pay more.
A truck license or such may reduce the fee, just because you need more driving skill to get them.

In Holland the road tax and riding licenses for motorbikes takes the power of the bike into account. Why just bikes?
Cars are taxed by weight and type relative fuel efficiency. So people buy frugal cars, chip tune them for power and trash them around...

lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.
