On-street bike parking is a safety improvement

This post from StreetFilms shows that adding bike parking in the curb lane can improve safety. Since a group of bicycles is less bulky and blocks views less than a car does, replacing one car space with a number of bicycle spots not only increases the capacity of the street and encourages alternative transportation, it also makes the street safer by allowing vehicle operators to see other vehicles and pedestrians coming around the corner.

Here's one case where there's no "it might hurt safety" excuse to promote alternative transportation.
