The arguments typically presented by opponents to cycling infrastructure are not about conserving anything other than the Western world's largest entitlement program: mass motoring.

The same people that criticise spending $1 million to create opportunity where it is needed downtown won't blink an eyeball at spending $21 million on a single intersection to make things easier for a few, mostly out of town motorists.
