Keep cars and bikes separated or lower the speed limit for all when they are mixed. I have to agree that bike lanes and bike boxes offer a false sense of security. They direct you along parallel parked cars that may door you at any moment on one side and speeding traffic on the other. I was right-hooked just last week on Hawthorne in a bike lane at a green bike box at a green light. I survived and I'm going to be sticking to the non bikelaned side streets whenever possible. I think Clinton is a great example of how bike infrastucture should be planned.
