A Cyclist in his 30ties was Killed on the 14/1/09 at 10.30 in Morning on Harolds Cross Road by a Cement Mixer outside Rudges Cycle Shop . This Road is always very Congested at any time of the Day and there are often a lot of Accidents.This Story was reported in the Irish Times and I did not see anything about it on Television.
There is no proper Cycling Infrastructure in Dublin with very badly designed Cycle Lanes often very narrow at 2 1/2 Feet. We could do with Segregated Cycle Lanes of 7 1/2 Feet Unidirectional with Parity given to Cyclists at all times. On these Cycle Paths I see signs saying Cycle Path 7 -1900 mon -sat why is this Cycle Lanes should be 24 Hours all Day and every Day including Sunday.
Cars should be Ticketed for Parking and Driving on Cycle Lanes but in Ireland this is not the case with Cars Driving on and Parking on Cycle Lanes.Traffic should not be allowed to cross over the Cycle Path to Park but rather the Cycle Path should be Segregated from Cars in Order for the General Public to see it is safe to Cycle on our Roads then we might get more People using their Bikes.
