    Every state must create SAFE bike path areas by using the same grooved highway treatment to deter cars from going off road ( and wake up truckers) along with special warning paint/labeling.
    IF people felt safe, they might be more inclined to venture out on the roadways - not everyone lives near a special bike route!

    Thanks for your coverage of the U.S. Bicycle Route System. Just to clarify, nearly all of the routes will use existing roads and infrastructure (and hardly any rail-trails). These routes will provide a great, low cost economy and active travel booster.

    Thanks again!
