Enforce for safety, not traffic flow

Andrew, at the Commute Orlando Blog, shares an important insight he had over the weekend about why traffic law enforcement seems so out of sync with what we're trying to do as bicyclists.
Today we have an auto-centric view of traffic that supports the notion that the auto drivers come first and much further down the line are cyclists and pedestrians. That’s completely backwards from a safety perspective.
His discussion, broadened a bit by Mighk Wilson, is clear and worthwhile. You may see it by clicking here.
