Techniques to get more people biking

As a complement to protected bike lanes (or cycle tracks), Nick Falbo writes and vlogs about protected intersections - a technique to make cycling safer for everyone. On the surface, it strikes me as a good solution - one that'll be useful on streets with sufficient right of way and a budget to afford the signals. Not all cities will have that combination, but for those that do it's well worth watching the video.
