While I agree with this in principle, I can't help but worry if something like this would simply turn out to be a tax for being relatively poor-- for not being able to afford the most up to date vehicle, or for being a tradesperson who needs to drive around in a pick-up truck on weekends because he/she can't afford to run two vehicles. An ecopass is a great idea only if it goes hand in hand with affordable and efficient (i. e. NOT the HSR on a weekend afternoon) public transportation. And not first ecopass, then LRT-- because you risk causing real hardship for real people in the meantime.
