102. The Government determines, by regulation, the duties payable annually to maintain an authorization granted for a transportation system by the Commission.
The regulation specifies the date on which the duties are payable and the other collection conditions. The duties payable to maintain the authorization when automobiles registered with the system operator are adapted may be less than the duties to maintain the authorization relating to a system in which no registered automobile is adapted. The same may be true of the duties payable for registered automobiles that are propelled solely by an electric motor, including automobiles whose motor is supplied by a hydrogen fuel cell, or another mode of propulsion that emits no pollutant, and whose only element that emits a pollutant is the automobile’s air conditioner.
