I came across this on the LBS's FB page. A little surprised it wasn't being discussed here, so here we go ... a draft transportation package was rolled out that included, among more taxes for gas and cars, a $25 tax on bicycles costing more that $500. The Seattle Times said this was, "a nod to motorists who complain that bicyclists don’t pay their fair share." I didn't realize all you needed to do to get lawmakers to listen was to whine.
Here's an old article saying that cyclists pay more than their fair share, and here's the story from the Cascade Bicycle Club's blog.
What are your thoughts?
