The latest stats show that melbourne has the highest car ownership rate in the country.
I own a car, but only use it for longer trips.

I make an effort to use public transport or ride a bike, yet I pay the same rego fee as someone who insists on driving into the CBD every day. It'd be nice to be only charged for my share of the wear and tear on the roads.

Anyway, as Euan pointed out, the rego fee doesn't cover wear and tear on roads. It's mostly insurance to cover your rehabilitation after an accident.
Imagine the howls of outrage should the government increase the fuel tax at the moment...
