highwater, I am referring specifically to the blitz mentioned in the blog post we are commenting on, which states with no question that the enforcement focus will be on cyclists (under the guise of cyclist safety). In reality we should not need blitzes at all. There should be non-stop consistent enforcement, and the overall focus should start with the most dangerous users moving down the line to the least dangerous.

In regards to Sterling, they have improved the street recently, but if they are serious about safety they should implement traffic calming devices (such as speed "humps" and curb bump-outs) and remove the stop signs which, over time, become useless as regular drivers find that they can coast through them without penalty -- and which burden cyclists and buses much more than they burden cars, giving people less incentive to leave their cars at home.
