As a regular cyclist, I can tell you that obeying all of the laws 100% of the time is often much more antagonistic to drivers than taking a few liberties, and stop signs are certainly one of those instances. Having a bicycle stop for every sign sounds great to most drivers - until they're stuck behind a bike in traffic. The 'Idaho Stop' has a lot of potential to bring more clarity to the issue as well as help provide a swifter and smoother 'flow' of traffic. At these kinds of speeds, confusion is just about the riskiest factor you can introduce on anyone's part.
