Unfortunate but not surprising. This "I don't use it so why should I pay for it" rhetoric has been slung from all sides for too long. We all use our society, infrastructure, public resources, etc... to what degree and in what way is pointless. We all need to pay for it.

As for the fee, frankly if the bike lobby wants to decrease the use of cars this may just be something they have to get used to. Seems I've been making this point a lot lately, but here we go again... cars generate large amounts of tax revenue. If we want fewer cars on our roads (and just fewer cars in general) than we have to recoup the lost money from somewhere... taxing the alternatives in one way or another is likely to be the approach of government
