Maybe we should lead by example in this case.
What state do you live in? I see it the other way, 10 cars to 1 bike . I never ride over the double yellow and unless I'm passing a slow ass car. Safely of course.

California. I saw no less than 12 bikes this morning on my 17 mile commute to the shop and it was 38° when I left the house.

Funny enough it was almost 13, but I decided not to ride at the last minute so I could take some tools to the shop with the convenience of the truck.

Strange that bikes even need to leave their own lane to do anything more than pass slow traffic. Cars just want to straighten their line. I get it but they don't understand that they can't go over the line and get back in their own lane before they think they can.

That would be my point entirely... I only ride on the street now for commuting and the very very rare road trip. I never ride on public roads for recreation or sport. Back when I was an avid sport-rider the club I rode with had pretty strict rules about not crossing into the oncoming lanes. In fact you could pretty much do anything else without so much as a raised eyebrow wheelies for miles, piss off the people that lived on the twisty backroad at 8:30am with your rev-limiter, hit your buddies kill switch at 65mph whatever..., but crossing the yellow line would earn you some admonishment.

What if one could go pro and get licence plate of offender and report it to police with video evidence?
