Is this Conservative or Liberal?

This article talks about charging vehicle owners for the cars they drive/pollution they cause. It is not that much; however, it would raise funds to invest in pollution control technologies. My question then is: is something like this conservative or liberal? This is very much a "personal responsibility" way to deal with a problem, but it also still is a government intervention.

I overall like this kind of policy. I think people should have to pay directly for what they do. This does exactly that, even if they still get to avoid paying the full cost of their actions.
