It's a pity so many of the comments show complete lack of knowledge about the sources of road funding, though. Our advocacy organisations really need to get on top of this, and push for more education of motorists on road funding, not to mention bicycle-related laws
By the way, here's a relevant link that one of the commenters of that article posted, which basically says that rego doesn't even come close to funding road construction & maintenance (but we knew that):http://mediumtowelldone.tumblr.com/post/29891427638/asking-cyclists-to-pay-rego
Combine the above with the fact that fuel excise is a tax on the use of fuel, the argument that cyclists don't pay for the roads makes even less sense. Not that that stops numerous ignoramuses from pushing that line over and over and over again.
