"In just about every North American city I've lived in or visited, I've been constantly amazed at the amount of sheer ignorance (or arrogance) so many cyclists display."

A comment that nicely explains it is this one :

Inconsistent rules, infrastructure, and education means people have a different perception of what normal riding is to them.

As cycling and its infrastructure normalize in a community, I think overall Ryan's comment is true that behaviour starts to normalize around a consistent set of social and legal rules. People riding incorrectly and/or recklessly start to stick out and get prosecuted, just like drivers that drive dangerously draw attention to themselves and get ticketed.
