  1. And drivers complain the cyclists don’t pay road tax – a true costing would mean paying cyclists to ride!

  2. Interesting article. And even with what it points out in relation to hidden costs of providing for motorists and how motorists are effectively subsidised, it doesn’t include the very large cost to the health system of increased morbidity amongst those who drive, increased deaths and hospitalisations due to pollution, increased deaths and hospitalisations due to vehicular crashes. The health costs alone are enormous and ignored in most (all?) planning decisions.
