“Please don’t squeeze”

I heard a PSA on the radio today along the theme of “Please don’t squeeze”…

It amounted to telling drivers that it was required to give cyclists at least 3 feet of clearance when passing them on the road.

So here’s my point: I understand the point of road safety with cyclists, but why can’t we require them to ride on the sidewalk? I’ve seen more than enough times traffic having to accommodate a slow cyclist when there’s a perfectly good sidewalk less than 10 feet away.

Why?
