I agree with your assessment. Add the problem of a city that shovels snow ONTO sidewalks during the winter since they refuse to use front-end loaders and dump trucks to haul the snow away. During the winter, both pedestrians AND bicyclists must share slick roads with sicko drivers and thereby increase the probability of being hit or travel over MOUNDS of snow on the sidewalks. Imagine asking taxpayers to fund bike lanes all over town. ;) Sure, in the latter case the politicians would likely try to force registration of bicycles, but they'll have to contend with kids and their irate parents who'll rightfully demand the registration of pedestrians as well. Ah, the registration of pedestrians for walking ... Let 'em try ... LoL
