Similar issues apply to bicycle drivers too. The outside lane on the street shown is too narrow to be shared by a bicycle and motor vehicle so the only safe place to control the lane riding in the center of the lane. Traffic speeds may to be high too do this safely, and motorists may harass or commit road rage against any cyclists that are "in their way". Some bicycle drivers resort to riding on sidewalk, when available, to avoid motorists, but sidewalk riding is much more dangerous (due to poor site lines and dimensional standards), not as serviceable, not always legal, not always available, and a hazard to other pedestrians.

ABA does wonders for autism and other special needs kids, but its hard to do and not obvious. You need special training and coaching. Our problem was insurance, schools, and state all said someone else needs to pay for it. We also ran into "authorities" pushing a tough love approach that actually makes these conditions worse. Do nothing and these kids become very expensive to care for as adults.
