I don't care at all about raising revenue to fund roads from bikes. And traffic offense accountability is a side issue. I care about the impact of a catastrophic injury on a cyclist either by falling off their bike or being hit by a car. It is only my guess but I expect that you will never be able to create a proper insurance regime without some form of registration.

The more people ride and the more they ride on the roads, the more likely there will be serious injuries unless we separate the cars from the bikes like they do in Holland (which is the best solution.)

I have a friend whose daughter goes to Cambridge and she told me she does have to register her bike with her college but only because if there are unidentified bikes in the college racks they are taken away by the college. Parking is at a premium. They are given a sticker that they attach to the bike. She did confirm that thefts are a major problem there and many people find their bikes being resold in local shops.
