Here, many families have two cars anyway. It would be relatively easy to game the system. Not that it matters, because it will never happen in this region.

DC and VA cars should be required to have EZ pass and pay toll on major city entrances on high pollution days. All major arterials like CT and WI Ave, GA Ave, NY Ave, Rhode Island Ave, Kenilworth Ave, VA bridges. Should start at a nominal amount, like 50 cents or a dollar. Gradually get a proper toll year round, with big increases on pollution days, to try to get at least a little payback for the city from the enormous costs imposed by suburban single person drivers. I say this as a suburbanite -- there should absolutely not be an implicit or explicit entitlement to drive a vehicle to other people's cities or towns and impose pollution, traffic danger, and congestion without compensation.
