As a cyclist, I actually wouldn't mind buying a yearly license as long as I knew that the money was being used for bike infrastructure. However, I DO think that if we're trying to get more people to bike to reduce congestion, that a yearly licensing fee would actually put a barrier up for people to do this.

Scott Thompson's article completely ignores the fact that EVERYONE pays for roads, whether or not they drive. Because the purpose of our roads is to increase economic activity by reducing travel effort, most people don't complain about this. We need to stop thinking of roads as a way to move cars and start thinking of them as a way to move people.
