The only tax tied to the amount of driving is gas tax, and our gas tax rates are way too low to cover just the roads let alone the externalities such as health care.

When it comes to municipal roads, they are funded almost entirely through property taxes which have nothing to do with driving.

We can fight all day about who pays for the 401 and who should pay, but in a city that can only cover a portion of road costs every year, with mounting deficits as a result, it is completely incorrect to claim drivers are paying more than their fair share.
