You make some great points, especially concerning the disparity between developments to cycling and driving infrastructure in Seattle. I am hopeful and excited for the separated bike lanes on Broadway, and with increased LINK Rail coverage to certain neighborhoods, I believe motorist traffic will slowly recede. While Seattle boasts a great cycling community and motorists generally understand that they have to accommodate us here, I would argue that the "motorist mentality" (some strange forgetfulness of how fucking fast and dangerous you are to the people on the street) is the most harmful to us, no matter how protected and extensive the bike lanes are. Maybe it will take more people giving up the gas pedal for foot pedals? ;~)
