Bicyclists aren't any more likely to disregard the rules of the road than drivers. Most drivers speed most of the time that they can. Most drivers roll stop signs when there is no cross traffic. Most drivers roll through right turn on red without stopping when they think that they can get away with it. Most drivers will not yield to a pedestrian at an uncontrolled intersection or even a crosswalk if there isn't also a red light or stop sign to make them stop. Most drivers don't seem to know what a yield sign means. Most drivers don't signal most of the time that they should. Every day I see lots of drivers holding cell phones up to their ears. I frequently see drivers turn across multiple lanes. I could go on and on. Drivers are no better than bicyclists about obeying the rules of the road. Anyone who believes otherwise is delusional. We'd all be a lot better off if everyone obeyed the rules of the road. At least bicyclists hardly ever kill other road users. Drivers kill almost 90 people per day across the U.S. I don't see how a sharrows could possibly encourage reckless bicycling. That doesn't make any sense at all. Riding in the middle of the traffic lane is not reckless. It's the safest way to ride. It's taught by all of the top bicycle safety experts. Unfortunately, ignorant people who've never studied bicycle safety are too arrogant to admit that they might not know everything that there is to know about bicycle safety.
