Why do you never take into account the indirect monies that various levels of government collect from the car industry? Maybe because the amounts are truly staggering. From the taxes coal and iron ore miners pay at the start of the process to the taxes paid by the used car salesperson when the car is resold for the last time. Without all those taxes the government would be broke. Bicycles not so much.

On top of that every other mode of transportation uses these roads. Over and over you have stated that cycling is very safe. If cycling is safe and helmets and other safety measures are not needed then why should we spend all the money on separated bike lanes?
