It's disappointing that these discussions always seem to end up as 'us' versus 'them'...

I'm sure most of the pro-cyclist proponents in this discussion are also - or have been - car drivers and can understand the frustration of having to navigate around unsafe cyclists. What I’m not sure of – based on the tone and content of some of the comments posted here – is whether the more car sympathetic points of view come from folks who ride bikes…?

There is a need for all road users to be safe. But there is more potential to cause harm if you are driving a car and thus, the safeguards, the rules - and the enforcement of the rules - must be targeted proportionately more towards the car. Why is this such a contentious point?!! If we can’t agree on this basic principal we are never going to move this debate forwards.
