It is difficult to conceive of vigorous growth of the number of cars without efficient road systems. Correspondingly, there is already a debate over who should pay for the construction cost of those systems.
A host of people consider that it is the responsibility of government to pay for infrastructure such as road systems and hospitals. This is because such infrastructure is the key to a city’s prosperity and authorities should put substantial resources into the construction of road systems. Besides, it should be recognized that the tasks of building roads are usually unprofitable in a short term. Only government but not individuals are capable of shouldering the costs of road construction . However, a point that should be noted is that if government does this, the burden of taxation may fall more heavily on citizens. This would inevitably reduce citizens’ working efficiency and their enthusiasm and passion for their jobs.
Others argue that the cost of the construction of road systems should be paid   by their users. Research shows that a close negative relationship is found when the money spent by users on roads is compared to the physical damage of road systems. That is to say, the more money users spend on roads, the better the condition of roads is. Meanwhile, if individuals take this responsibility, the budget of government will be spent more on other sectors such as health care and military. As a result, the security of the whole nation is tightened and the general health of citizens is improved.
From my perspective, government should pay the high cost of construction of road systems for it has such great power to shoulder this responsibility and perform its function well. But meanwhile, individuals should pay the repairing cost of the road. As a result, the roads will be less physically destroyed.
