Thank you for discussing this topic. Bicycles and cars do not belong on the same roads. As a driver I would like to commute via bicycle but I am afraid of all the cavalier cyclists and oblivious drivers. The only way I would feel comfortable biking to work would be on a "bicyles only" bike path. I have had my windshield cracked in by the fist of an angry cyclist after veering into his lane to avoid a fellow driver turning left. I will say that now I look for bikes before I near the bike lane, but I can't imagine what might have happened if I had hit the biker. The risk is too great for us to share the road.
