If you want to argue, "but I contribute to road costs by paying registration on a/multiple motor vehicle/s", then you have to agree with the argument that registration fees help pay for the roads.
Otherwise I don't understand what this poll is for.
Indeed the argument that one already pays rego on another vehicle isn't watertight, but it's not worthless either. My guess is it ill cut off a large % of those who want rego implemented.I often hear the rego doesn't pay for roads argument, but seeing stats/number to back it is rarer (in fact, your link is the first data I've seen).
