Editorial | Could the time be right for a trailer tax?

For years, readers of this newspaper have complained about unlicensed, unregistered utility trailers using the public roads without paying their fair share. Recent talk about the need for more money to maintain the state's roads and bridges has renewed the complaints. The reasoning goes, why raise gas taxes or any other fees unless you have first taxed the trailers. Citizens see this as a glaring omission in state law and a patent unfairness in taxation, and those perceptions are warranted.
