Road damage from vehicles is entirely dictated by tire pressure ... Tractor trailers are another matter with tire pressures often at 90psi.

Racing bicycles often use a tire pressure over 100psi. Since road damage is entirely dictated by tire pressure, they are clearly the worst ... or maybe you don't know what you're talking about.

Finally some sanity. Let's tax bicycles to get extra revenue!!

What makes "Java" or anything object oriented difficult to read is that objects tend to produce more spaghetti code and have a ton of easily overlooked side effects. Debugging can be a nightmare. I see more "pitch till you win" code maintainers.... so much so, that some consider it normal to just keep trying stuff until it "works". I'm not saying you can't create "good" object oriented code.... I just haven't seen any yet.

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.
