According to a market research by tire manufacturer Goodyear, 67% of Dutch drivers do not want to pay a "pay-as-you-go" scheme, but 85% of the drivers are OK with paying extra not to have to be in a traffic jam, and even 91% of drivers are willing to drive slower if that means that they don't have to be in a traffic jam.

According to the research, they are willing to pay €1.50 per day to avoid heavy traffic. The study has been performed because of a current debate in The Netherlands of taxing car drivers per kilometer driven, instead of an annual flat tax, you pay for each kilometer you are on the road. As the study shows, if it's just paying an extra tax, No Thank You, but if it means that you can drive without being in a traffic jam, then Yes Please.

Dutch Lane Splitting

Of course, people could avoid traffic jams altogether by using motorcycles. Lane splitting is legal in The Netherlands (as are a lot of other fun things Smoking Joint Smiley), so you'd have little problems with traffic jams, and it's more fun.

The great thing about a "traffic-free" tax, is if you are caught up in a traffic jam, you could get to claim a refund...
