Taxing wheels in Appleton

So Appleton is considering a $20.00 annual wheel tax now. Great, more money out the window for roads with potholes in them.

It's user-based.

Those who use the roads pay for the roads, not property owners via special assessments.
I get that part.

But I'd be worried about paying BOTH down the road if this is approved.

And does this mean that motorcycles and bikes will end up paying too? They both use the roads as well. What about pedestrians? They cross the roads all the time while walking. Perhaps we need to come up with a pro-rated system here.
