We are having the same problem with bicycle commuters here in atlanta.
While the city is trying to promote a green live/work/play environment, we are not there yet for bike riders. The proposed belt line project is hoping to rectufy some of that.
Until then we need to continue to educate car and truck commuters to keep their eyes open for bike riders young and old alike.
