You missed the point. I am not talking about the paying of tolls, I am
talking about who LEVIES the tolls.
You want the government to arrange a toll system for pedestrians, so
they are penalized for the cost they impose on the drivers.
BillK's point was that the logical extension of your position required
pedestrian tolls, and I presume you do not want the government watching
everything you do in order to supervise the poll system. And in that
case, there needs to be a private toll levying system.
