Amen. (I couldn't get the sound to work on y 'puter - we're moving offices tomorrow and everything is ftummled.)
People do need to be educated - it's another argument against paths, looks like. If you have the paths, people think everybody should just get out of their way, and they never learn to get out on the roads if they're not riding like pedestrians.
Pete has a good point, though... if the peds are out in the bike lanes, they're the ones where they oughtn't be.
The other factor (and, alas, another disadvantage of bike paths, no matter how excellent) is that cars get much more hostile about cyclists on the roadway if they think there's a path the riders "should" be using.
