Caltrans, the California Department of Transportation, is planning to test a new road charge system that would charge drivers based on the number of miles they drive instead of the traditional gas tax. This pilot program aims to address the decline in gas tax revenue due to the rise of electric and fuel-efficient vehicles. The program will be voluntary and will involve 5,000 participants who will report their mileage and pay a per-mile fee.
