"They try and run me off the road, and I have nowhere to go because of the curb bordering the right lane and small space between the border of the right lane and the curb."
When the motorists crowd me like that, I move to the left side of the "oil strip". This forces overtaking motorists to fully merge into the left lane.
Do note their license plate. They are violating the law with an improper pass at the the least and reckless endangerment to boot.

It all depends on the character of the environment and the cultural sensitivities to cycling in any given area. Sometimes it is better, sometimes it is worse, sometimes it appears genuinely indifferent.
I note that there isn't a distinction between reactive assertion and proactive assertion. What is the working assumption and why?

Sidewalks are the Products of the Segregationist Evil Doers!! Power to the Pedestrian!! Take the Lane!!
Laugh all you want, but the prevalence of segregated walking facilities has resulted in most people no longer having the experience or skills to drive and walk safely and effectively on roads without segregated walking facilities.
ILTB's post was the funniest thing I'd read in a long time, until I read the reply.
Down with Segregated Walking Facilities, DWSWF, DWSWF, DWSWF...
