Replace signs?! I don't want to pay for that
! If motorists want to find their way around they can buy a map.

Not in Thunder Bay! A few cyclists have been charged recently for riding on the sidewalk. I've gotten used to riding in traffic enough that I am even making left hand turns from one busy four lane road to another. Left hand turns move slowly enough that you can keep up if you're in the right gear, then just merge right to the outer lane again.
All of our cycling accidents are because cyclists are going through crosswalks too fast and turning vehicles can't see them. We haven't actually had a bike accident yet where the cyclist was riding in traffic. But if I had a nickel for every time a car passed too close to me, I'd have, like, 45 of them or something.
