I agree. We are not only subsidizing drivers by thousands per capita on an average annual basis, but we as a society are discouraging transit use on a wide scale. Those that do not drive do not have access to employment, beyond the usual minimum wage, low-skilled jobs, and also end up spending a lot more money on necessities, such as groceries.

As somebody that does not drive, I resent paying taxes for roads, policing, traffic lights, parking, and other amenities enjoyed for "free" by drivers, while they receive preference on almost every job when compared to an equally qualified non-driver.
