[Cyclelicious] New comment on A United Front.

Yokota Fritz has left a new comment on your post "A United Front":

In California, school children are taught to take the lane in the few place bicycle instruction is available. I see them riding in heavy traffic all the time in the South Bay and on the peninsula. VC principles are part of the public school curriculum in Washington State (ranked most bicycle friendly state in the USA) and is also taught in Portland, OR schools. I'm 100% with Val that VC & P&P are not mutually exclusive. I disagree with Val that it's seen as mutually exclusive by most Americans -- I think most Americans are completely unaware, and most of us who are aware have the attitude that both approaches have their place, and then you have the extremists on both ends ("ROADS ARE TOO DANGEROUS FOR VC!" vs "P&P ARE MENTALLY ILL") who tend to be the loudmouths, egg each other on, and try to convince the reasonable middle to their side.
