The only part of car operation that reflects marginal costs fairly is fuel. For everything else, depreciation, insurance, maintenance, parking, you pay mostly up front. So, if we want to decrease car use, move as many of the fixed costs to use costs. Insurance could be moved entirely to gas tax for baseline coverage. And hidden parking costs such as you find in municipal tax also need to be rolled into gas tax.
