We should all pay our share

The only method reasonably certain to ensure that everyone contributes to transit is some form of property or income tax.

I currently do not have to pay tolls and, considering the billions already collected in various “road taxes,” resent their implementation.

However, since they do exist then we all should have to pay our share.

I think that since tolls, vehicle levies, and gas taxes can be dodged, the only method reasonably certain to ensure that everyone contributes is some form of property or income tax.

Owners, renters, drivers, cyclists, transit riders, even ardent pedestrians – all receive benefits from our transportation systems and all should contribute, not just the easily targeted.
