Trib Columnist Taunts Bicycle Riders With New Bike Fees, Taxes, Tolls
Because with his most recent column, he’s probably going to get plenty.
In his column, Kass believes it’s finally time for bike riders to carry their share of the load humorously proposing a series of fees, taxes and tolls for two-wheeled human powered vehicles.
Lord knows the city needs the revenue.
His ideas include city bicycle stickers, bike parking meters, stop sign camera enforcement (to catch all the bikers blowing through the intersection without even slowing down) and bike tolls enforced using what Kass calls the Rahm-PASS.
Of course, Kass is getting a reaction from bicycle enthusiasts and others, sharing some choice comments in a followup column.
Humor aside, maybe Kass is onto something?
