There isn't much logic in opposing continuous bike lanes. Making city streets safer for all users should be part of all design/redesign processes that city hall undertakes. The city already legislates road uses (ie: truck routes), the province legislates lane use on highways (HOV lanes). There are many car owners who are quick to exclaim their right to the road to the exclusion of all other users. This sense of entitlement seems to arise from the disconnected feeling of freedom that driving (and auto company marketing) provides (despite the that fact that automobiles and roads/highways are the most heavily regulated part of most people's daily routine.)
