Pay-per-use

Now there’s an idea … pay for what you use.

As a cyclist and pedestrian, do I pay-per-use? I suppose as a home owner, my property taxes pay for sidewalks, cross-walks, etc. But how do I as a cyclist pay for road and trail use? Does my bus fare come even close to paying for the use? If I drove a car, where does the  money come from to pave the roads and put in signs and light?

Seattle might just find out how some of this shakes out. Take a look at “Let’s try taxing drivers by the mile” from the Seattle Times.
