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.
