they spend it on mass transit and bike trails and eco projects
Yes there is that. But it is a small percentage compared to highway maintenance.
Everyone here at FR needs to remember that Governor Grey Davis emptied the road fuel tax coffers more than once when he was in charge in California.
He literally put an IOU into the records for all that money & put the money into the General Fund, where it as squandered on many of California’s social programs.
That was one of the reasons he got recalled & replaced by Arnold.

The highway fund may be broke but look at all the great bicycle paths, public art and mass transit that those funds have provided.
