The real problem is the 1% of drivers who don't think bikes should ever be on the road, or that they can ever possibly be at fault if they endanger one. They make death threats, try to start fights, or even swerve, break, and ram with their vehicles to make their point. When they hit people, they flee the scene.

I see people getting tickets for more than their bikes are worth downtown all the time for riding on the sidewalk. I've had multiple people get out of their vehicles to fight me at King & Walnut (thanks to the "traffic calming, taking a lane there means obstructing half of King, but there's no safe way to do it otherwise), IN VIEW OF THE POLICE STATION. And I never see anything happen in a legal sense.

Wanna know why people are scared to bike on the roads?
