One of the things that was mentioned in the video was the allocation of space. I particularly agree with the notion of going to the minimum width for travel lanes and the maximum width for bike lanes.

I suspect that the big push for segregated infrastructure in places like Portland, OR comes from the insanely narrow (and door-zoned) bike lanes that their road departments have put in. Such installations create the feeling that bike lanes are dangerous, which theirs are. Where the bike lanes are wider, cycling is much more comfortable.
