In the comments to my post on the Primrose bike lane, Bencott said:

I had to smile because Robert had run the video cameras on our way down there. What we captured showed exactly what Ben was talking about. As a bonus, we also captured the problem with shoehorning bike lanes into narrow spaces. Have a look:
More video to come. The week of 11/16 was packed full of video shooting for the Florida Bicycle Association’s Law Enforcement Toolkit (to educate traffic enforcement officers about the laws and safety concerns of cyclists). We got some really great footage. I’m in the process of cataloging the nuggets and contemplating posts.
