Are you trying to live up to you name?
I'd argue we have barely scraped the surface of the 'easy' stuff. Though granted it depends on your definition of 'easy'. One could argue all of it is hard because of the politics of cycling in Australia.
Move your way back up the hazard hierarchy. Administrative controls. This has started but we are still not there yet. We need to enforce the ones implemented and educate about safe vehicle operation around cyclists.
For example look at all the MPD videos ignored. If the police followed up on that and punished the offenders AND were vocal about it then behaviour would change. We did that with drink driving, we did that with speeding. Both have reduced massively due to these actions.
