Studies indicate than MHLs impact ridership negatively. Those "advocates" for MHLs are either misguided, or actually not really bicycling advocates, but self-appointed "safety"-advocates. They see what they think is popular, low-hanging fruit. What they frequently come up against is informed dissent from actual cycling advocates.

AAA, as I mentioned above, claim to be getting on board with cycling advocacy, but I can't see that they would advocate MHLs as policy in a vacuum--ie. they are as aware of MHLs keeping cyclists off of streets used by motorists they represent as any other player.
