It's hard to get bicyclists to agree on what they believe is the safest infrastructure.
Some bicyclists want bike lanes everywhere and well-intentioned obliging road planners plot bike lanes next to parking spaces in downtowns like this one in Las Vegas.
Other bicyclists want to bike just like they would if they drove a car.
These "vehicular bicyclists" have a great point about unsafe bike lanes and biking in the traffic lane because putting in bike lanes right next to parking spots is a recipe for disaster -- namely, being doored and hitting the asphalt.
Plus, cars routinely drive in bike lanes. Like here.
