I respectfully disagree. Where I live, the police are very good about enforcing these laws. I see Share the Road PSA's on TV all the time. There are Share the Road signs on most streets. All new roads are being built with bike-only lanes.

Drivers almost always cut a wide path around me when I'm on the street. If I'm making a left turn, drivers typically stay behind me until I make the turn. Overall, I think everybody around here is doing a good job on both sides of the issue.
