cycling can be dangerous...
cars are designed to keep those inside the car safe...
there is little design or concern for anyone outside the car

separate bike paths are great
but we do not need separation... we need acceptance
so many car drivers falsely think that cyclists should be on the bike path instead of the road
well..
cars can be on the city streets or the highway
they get to take the route that they want to take
so can bicycles

bike paths and bike routes are not always convenient for where cyclists are trying to go
the streets need to be more safe for cyclists and pedestrians
cars need to slow down
cars need to stop at the stop line and make complete stops at red lights and stop signs
and the big one
car drivers need to be more alert

people are not in touch with their surroundings
car drivers need to look for and anticipate cyclists and pedestrians
