But at the end of the day 100% of the taxes are paid by 100% of the people (if corporations, at the end of the day by the shareholders who are people) so isn't the whole argument a red herring? As much as it might annoy us, we live in a country where you only get one vote even if you pay most of the tax. I get it that drivers pay a proportionately higher share of the costs of roads, as they should because they use them proportionately more. But that doesn't mean that they are any more important in a political context than as they are as a voting block. They "think they own the road" because they know that if they whine as a group, politicians will jump. If "drivers" become "engaged" the way RTH promotes it for "residents" I would watch out.
