Re: Welcome to Cloud Cuckoo Land

"if you're fine with getting around by bike why should you have to pay for fancy roads for those that can afford to buy a Mercedes?"

Because unless you live *completely* off grid and grow all your own food, weave all your own clothes etc., there's a remarkably high probability that the essential items you need to survive will have been moved around the country on the motorway network. You might never use the motorways in person, but simply by living in this country you'll almost certainly be responsible for indirectly generating traffic on the motorways.
