Writer Queena Kim, writer for Marketplace, believes bicyclist and hybrid car drivers should have to pay more in taxes because they do not pay taxes on gas like most drivers. However, this argument is seriously flawed. Should we put a tax on those who walk on sidewalks? Property tax, a tax every homeowner pays, goes toward city infrastructure costs, not gas taxes. Gas taxes do help with maintaining roadways, but cars do much more damage to roadways than bicycles do.
