The problem with "fairness" based arguments comes when the overall situation is far from fair. In these situations, superficial "equity" usually only entrenches underlying inequality.

Cars are by far the most dangerous road users, and cause more harm (to people, other cars and structures, that the rest combined. They receive the lion's share of funding and subsidies, and are by far the richest on average. They take up the most space (as cars or with roads/parking) and travel far faster. There is no underlying equality here.

We've all been more than fair to cars, motorists and the auto industry. How about trying something else?
