Portland's Bike Boxes- why not here? Or everywhere??

"..and it was stunningly clear that had it been in place on October 11, Tracy Sparling would still be alive, and it only cost the city a few thousand dollars."

This is what I'm saying! Does someone have to DIE before we get appropriate bike lanes? These sort of lanes should be the standard, not a luxury. Just yesterday Debi came across a scene where a bicyclist was hit from behind by an elderly driver. Perhaps if the lane were marked clearly through the intersection (as shown in this video), that driver would have seen the cyclist.
