I don't see that as an attack at all. For me it will be 'enough' when a reasonably competant cyclist can go from one point to another in Hamilton, and not feel under attack by the thousand pound steel objects hurtling all around them.

And I should say - not under attack due to any individual driver - although that is fairly common - but under attack due to a system that forces the two groups to compete for limited resources.

And you may not agree, but I strongly feel that in the competition for limited transport space, the preference should go to those transport mediums that do the least damage to the planet, and the health of individuals and the city as a whole. To me, that is cycling and walking.

Don't get me wrong, I do own a vehicle, but I drive it sparingly, and walk/cycle/take transit as much as possible.
