Been a bike commuter for 10 years it is a great way to avoid the traffic
congestion, save money on the car and the gym. I normally arrive at work and
home less stressed and it is good for the planet. And for all the bike haters
remember one more bike is one less car in front of you at the lights
This physical fitness craze may cost these bikers more than they bargained for.
To make up losses in government gas tax and roads the state will take actions to
make them pay a bike tax to care for the roads, lane painting, and design costs
to accommodate this new traffic congestion. Not that I am against
biking, but the state and cities really hate to lose taxes. And gas taxes are
very lucrative profit in a down economy and rising gas prices and cost of living
skyrocketing out of sight. The Gas and sales taxes are a "percentage of
sale" tax and inflation is government best friend and most profitable form
of taxation on the backs of poverty.They don't even have to ask
for a tax increase. Inflation is an automatic tax increase equal to the
inflation rate. Its also why no government wants inflation to ever stop and fear
it.Its a crime to have something provided for free, so a bike road
tax is inevitable to maintain the gross cost of government waste.
Actually, motorcylces are becoming more attractive.
