1: There are a far greater number of ignorant, *richard cranium* cyclists than there are considerate, good ones. By ignorant *richard cranium* cyclists, I'm mostly referring to women on wannabe bikes that have one single gear, flowers hanging out of their helmet, etc, who are there purely for show and to piss off as many people as possible (mostly other cyclists who are actually trying to get somewhere).
2. Low speed traffic and high speed traffic on the same roads, can NEVER work. "Bike lane blah blah blah" all you want, but when a cyclist falls off, has to merge, has to turn across traffic, etc, they're becoming one with the high speed traffic. Cyclists need their own space and a 1.5ft wide bike lane on the side of the road isn't it. Moving them off the roads completely would also weed out the majority of number 1.
Also, my driving style:
