Left Lane Tax.

I don't agree with this approach, but at least he has a constructive idea:
Conceding he'll face opposition from foes of tax hikes within his own party, Sen. Dick Day on Wednesday proposed increasing the gasoline tax by 5 cents a gallon and adding fees to the costs of buying new or used cars to raise money for highway construction.

Day, a Republican from Owatonna, said the charges would bring in $260 million a year to repair or expand rural roads and relieve congestion in the Twin Cities.
I have a different and much more lucrative idea. Charge a Left Lane Tax for the people who park it at 60 mph in the passing lane. Tax them $50 on the spot, record their driver's license number, give a non tax-dectable receipt and charge repeat offenders $500. Over the course of a week, we'd knock on the door of raising $300 million.
