While I agree with 1 and 2, most of the others seem to me to be ignored rather than misunderstood.
A couple that would make my list.
* You cannot cross an unbroken centre line to overtake a cyclist
* there is no rule requiring a cyclist to "get out of your way" of "get off the road"
* Green paint / bicycle symbol does not a bicycle lane make
Mmmm, seems my list is a bit bike centric, wonder how that could have happened
