"...and that about a quarter of all bicycling was observed on city sidewalks, which is against the law."

Huh? In Los Angeles, sidewalk riding is NOT against the law, except on Ocean Front Walk in Venice, and expressly permitted by muncipal code. Please read LAMC 56.15.

How can they say this is "the busiest" if they only looked at 25?

Brent is right, a simple fact check with the LACBC would confirm this.

@Pat:

I'm not sure where the Daily Breeze got the "25 locations" number. The LACBC's precis specifies they looked at "over 50 strategic locations." The report also acknowledged that the optimal intersection count is roughly one per 15,000 people, but that they didn't have the resources for a better study. You might check out the document:
