Cycling in Sydney Australia
Goes to show you need a Mayor who is bike friendly to stare down the anti bike lane crowd.
Apparently it just got a little easier in LA, with a change to a law so that bike lanes and other active transport initiatives no longer have to satisfy Level of Service standards (LOS) based on car congestion. In fact bike lanes are their own justification now since they reduce vehicle miles travelled (VMT)

RMS is always basing decisions on LOS, time they adopted VMT as one of the criteria.
