There would be far more accidents with roads engineered at 90 and posted at 90. The design speed has to be higher than the posted speed to accomodate passing and emergency vehicles (which should be going faster than the majority of people on the road). But this isn't a place to really discuss that.

What we should be talking about is why we aren't changing our design standards to suit the changing needs of society. The design STANDARD for all municipal road cross sections should allow for a full bike lane and STANDARD pavement markings should include bike lanes and boxes. It's time to stop pandering to the "what if" crowd and do something positive for a change.
