Hope you included the Amish and bicycle riders. EVs are still in the early adopter phase of their development. Early adopters are willing to adjust to own and experience new technology. Most people aren't and won't accept EVs until it's a seamless choice between ICE and EV. A high percentage of US households could easily live with an EV as the 2nd or 3rd vehicle in the fleet.

Nobody should be able to use a taxpayer supported road system with out paying for the privelege.
