-- I am one of those cranks who think that a sufficiently wide outer lane
is preferable to a designated bike lane, and that where the outer lane is
not wide enough, the motorist should just sit back and suffer.  The
potential problem with designated bike lanes (sometimes) is that they
create the impression (among motorists) that bikes do not belong anywhere

where there are only a couple or three designated lanes anyway), they are
sometimes configured in completely irrational ways, inviting right hooks,
