Make car users start paying for themselves

I suggest you only pay for car infrastructure projects using fees on car users. The 40% of Seattle residents who do not drive on a daily basis are subsidizing car users through property taxes and the general fund, which pay for over 96% of Seattle's transportation infrastructure.

 

This should not happen. Make car users pay for their own infrastructure, including paying for the majority of Seattle city property (roads and parking spaces) that is dedicated to cars, and emergency response for the dozens of injuries and property damage they cause every month.
