From the 2010 Bicycle Count Report:

As San Francisco continues to move forward with planning and constructing a continuous network of bicycle facilities, the bicycle counts reinforce the need to pay close attention to both sidewalk and wrong-way riding. At almost every count location sidewalk and/or wrong-way riding was observed (page 11).

Why don't you ever talk about the pedestrians injured or killed by cars? Cars kill people in San Francisco at a rate that is about 100 times the number killed by cyclists, why are you so unbalanced?

I'm guessing he's "unbalanced" because just about every other pedestrian/bike blog out there is harping on the dangers of cars without giving any attention whatsoever to the dangers of bicycles.
