On the Idaho Stop, it really feels like so many of these interventions like blocking neighborhoods are unnecessary when stop signs do the job pretty well... but stop signs impede cycling, the Idaho Stop really feels like the best solution.

Even without going full Idaho Stop, I wish the ministry would support a simple "All-way stop where cyclists are exempt" special signage to support greenways. Then the city could identify specific side-roads as being greenways, implement cyclist-exempt all-way-stops along the route, and create a cycling-and-pedestrian friendly route with nothing but road signs. Obviously that would be a half-measure, but it would make so many greenways (like my Napier route) into easy low-hanging-fruit.
