COMING SOON: KANSAS CITY BIKE TAX?!?!
Given that Kansas City local government continues to live on loans and tax increases . . . There's an option on the table for a great many struggling municipalities that would make a lot of sense in this cowtown.
To wit . . .
IS IT TIME FOR A KANSAS CITY BIKE TAX IN ORDER TO PAY FOR SO MANY ACCOMMODATIONS FOR LOCAL CYCLISTS?!?!?
Chicago isn't alone in thinking about a bike tax . . .
Here's why a bike tax would make sense in Kansas City:
- This town needs more transit revenue in a bad way . . . Bikers are easy marks given their constant advocacy and requests for more cash.
- A Kansas City Bike Tax might be welcomed by cyclists in order to become more "vested" in this town and earn another talking point for their continued levy requests.
- A Kansas City Bike Tax and cyclist registration for adults like the Critical Mass d-bags would make them accountable for often rude behavior on local streets.
And so .. . It's always been one way for biking d-bags in Kansas City . . . They typically push expensive public street accommodations that mostly go unused BUT NOW given desperate circumstances for Kansas City finances and a structurally unbalanced budget . . . NOW it just might be time for Kansas City cyclists to start paying their fare share in the new year.
