It's interesting the opinions of people on here, and I assume it's because of where we live in the US.

I personally don't mind paying gas taxes/car registration fees that help pay for transportation projects (road construction/maintenance as well as public transit) throughout California; so what if my gas taxes pay for road work up in Humboldt County? The people there are fellow Californians.

Just like even though I don't have any children and never will, I don't mind paying taxes that help support public schools and higher education. Why would I want to surround myself with uneducated kids, and not support higher education for fellow Californians?
