How about a weight-mile tax for ALL vehicles?

Those that cause the most damage to roads (after studded tires are made illegal at the ballot box this year) would be the heaviest trucks.

The vehicles that cause us to have to resurface roads and fix potholes constantly would be dinged for their negative impacts.

If all the road users were bicyclers, think how long the roads would last – not only the surfaces, but the lane geometry – less widening of roads to accommodate increased traffic
