  1. The problem is huge the solution simple, the bike rider as well as the auto driver need to have clear and consistent laws on what they are to do with each other. The forum for this teaching could be a tv station that could provide 24x 7 training and stating of the laws which would include bike rights and obligations as well as the full drivers ed course. I have watched many stations which repeat shows over and over and I end up getting the complete gist of the show eventually if by absorption if nothing else. Knowing the rules and having them stated often will save lives and standardize what the road user is to do when things crop up. It is common sense and that seems to be lacking in most everything we are doing these days.
