On limited access/high speed roads, I can see preventing bicycles, scooters, mopeds, etc. In fact, if you watch the entry ramps to *most* freeways, there's a sign that says just that.

We're not discussing limited-access roadways here tho. We're discussing pretty much everything *but* because *most* cyclists don't want the BS involved in dealing with the cars.



While I don't agree with these guys, it just goes to show that *in the right conditions,* riding a bike is faster than driving. (and why lane sharing should be a nationwide thing, not just relegated to CA)
