Taxing cyclists

2009/04/22

Wong wrote about the newly proposed bicycle path in northern NT. He argues that the path is mostly for leisure purpose but not for daily commute, and urges the government to promulgate a bike policy in the city area.

I don’t think the government has much incentive to do this. Taxes on vehicles are high, while it is difficult to tax a bicyclist. Couple of weeks ago there was a discussion on the freakonomics blog, some in US are complaining that the bicyclists are free rider on the road system as only motor vehicles are paying tax, a lawmaker (possibly he doesn’t have a bike) proposed a law to tax cyclists.
