Locally, drivers do not overpay otherwise we would not pay for roads out of property taxes and we would not be running a deficit. Provincially, drivers underpay as well (from the very study you quote). So they picked one radius where the numbers go the other way - all of GHTA, which as a unit happens also to be the most densely populated area in the province.

All this means is that higher density means more efficient infrastructure expenditure. THerefore we should strive for higher density. Meaning we should devote more space to people, not to cars. More buildings/fewer parking lots. More transit/fewer car lanes. More pedestrians. More cyclists. MORE PEOPLE.
