    The winters of Western Europe are much milder and have less snow than we do in the Midwest, North and East. One key would be the addition of snow melt systems to keep these intersection areas free of ice and snow plow mounds.

    This actually seems like a random intersection in the Netherlands. Also even in Berlin there is this kind of lanes to give the cyclists more space and safety.
    I believe that a huge part of safe driving is respect and support from the city itself. In the Netherlands car taxes are incredibly high and whenever you move to a city you get support (even financial sometimes) for getting a bike. I think that would be a huge step for cities crowded by cars.

    It's a good first step for designing new intersections. I do not see how smaller existing intersections with less room wouldn't further congest traffic, it seems like a lot of work and slows down everybody though. I understand for safety, and it is a good idea however expensive. Thankfully I'm not a city planner.
