Capatilst...are you actually advocating additional government programs to register, license and insure cyclists?

As a cyclist and an automobile owner/driver, I'd be more than willing to pay the extra cost to licence a bike on one condition...that cycling infrastructure receive an equal allocation of the roads construction and maintenance budget.

You have also very conveniently ignored all of the positive externalities that cycling provides to society...less traffic congestion, less wear and tear on the roads, lower obesity rates, reduced pollutants leading to lower health-care costs for all taxpayers.

On the whole, drivers are reaping these benefits, without paying for them. Do you also advocate collecting an extra fee from drivers to pay for these benefits?
