Five to six lane road.... Truck route. 60 km/hr speed limit (i.e. people are going 70+).... I don't blame someone for wanting to be on the sidewalk. If this was in Holland the bike path would be exactly where the sidewalk is, separated from the road... it's not safe either objectively or subjectively to bike on the road in its current configuration.

Look at this streetview image from just down the road. Unless you are in the hardcore spandex crowd, this is not going to get anyone out of their cars anytime soon.
