Educate Motor Vehicle Drivers on Sharing the Road with Cyclists
It's apparent that Vehicle Drivers in BC are under eduacted on safe practices to use when sharing the road with cyclists. This makes it dangerous for people who want to cycle all over the city because they feel they are increasing their risk of getting injured. BC Driver's licensing could include more requirements of knowledge regarding sharing the road. A class on bicycle safety for cyclists could also improve safety for bikers and car drivers on Vancouver streets.

Education is needed for both motorists and cyclists. Ongoing.
Licenses for cyclists makes no logical sense. Based on at-fault stats it is equally logical to require a license and helmet for pedestrians. See my comments on "Mandatory Licenses for Cyclists".
You got my vote!
How about, educate cyclists on sharing the road with motor vehicle drivers? While they are at it, why don't they go as far as requiring licences for cyclists.
increased signage notifying drivers that they approaching a cycling route may increase driver awareness of cyclists as well
