I pedaled to work Monday morning, which I had never done before because all things considered, I'd like to go on living a while longer.

The City of L.A. is striving to make improvements in bicycle safety infrastructure. Yet and still, it can be a harrowing experience trying to commute in the City of Angels on two wheels. This is a good article from the Los Angeles Times about that very thing.

Good discussion and video on the integration of protected bike lanes with "protected intersections". Four main elements:
1. Corner refuge island: Bring protected barrier from bike lanes far into the intersection;
2. Forward stop bar: Bikes can yield to pedestrians and wait ahead of motor vehicles which makes bikes more visible and gives them a head start when the light turns green.
3. Set back crossings: 1 car length of space between bicyclist and cars.
4. Signals and signal phasing: controls how and when cars proceed.
The problem becomes trying to enforce this rule or prove that the car driver was being aggressive or driving too close to the biker at the time of an accident causing bodily harm. This is especially true given that many bicycle crashes every year happen from being clipped but, legal claims that follow often involve a "he said, she said" as to where the bicycle and the motor vehicle were in relation to each other at the time of impact. This rear view camera is a great way to document positions of both bicycle and automobile as the auto approaches the bike to pass. I would suggest that any biker who commutes in urban areas of California buy and install one of these as a safeguard.
