LETTER: Gas taxes

The writer of the letter on March 22 is operating under the misconception that gas taxes pay for all roads.

Wrong.

Gas taxes pay for state highways.

County and city roads and trails are funded by local taxes — property taxes, sales taxes, etc.

He suggests that cyclists be taxed to pay for roads.

Perhaps he should thank bicyclists for paying for more than their fair share of wear-and-tear on county and city roads.
