Who REALLY pays for Highways? NOT drivers, report finds.

from the VACC listserv:

A recent American report shows in detail how drivers DO NOT pay for the roads/highways that they use. The author also provides some insight on WHY the 'useful fiction' of drivers paying is so persistent, despite all the evidence to the contrary.

While based on the USA situation, most of the elements of the author's analysis look to apply equally to the Canadian situation.

Hi Ron:

Thanks for sending this around.

There are two other reports like this that I have seen. One is from ToddLitman at the VTPI, the other is from the BC Provincial Gov't (Department of Transportation and Infrastructure).

Their conclusions are pretty much congruent between the three of them.

Bye, Ken Ohrn
