I would like to know if any fellow commuters agree that in cities which are basically "bike friendly" that have Bike Lane signs posted......they need to be larger.....average drivers dont seem to pay much attention.....cuz I still almost get nailed every day!!! Ive already wrote my senators and congressmen...and city council about this.

They won't be properly respected until such time as people get better driver training. It's like all the other laws such as speeding, cell phones (in some places) and so on. A bit of law enforcement would soon fix the problem.
