Make it safer for all road users - get more bikes riding on the roads - safer for pedestrians, safer for drivers and safer for cyclists.
Lots of cyclists on the footpaths don't impact on the drivers' psyche. No need to worry about them, give way to them, care about them (at least in the Australian legal structure). Just drive faster!
