Re: Re: Dublin’s Bicycle Clutter
This “cyclists are the enemy” attitude is getting old and very tiresome.
I honestly can’t think of ever hearing of any incident of a cyclist knocking down a 3 year old child or a blind person on a footpath. That being said I have personally encountered plenty of pedestrians who, just because they don’t hear a car coming, don’t bother to look and just step out to cross the road, which could be far more damaging to an on-coming cyclist than the pedestrian. I’ve also noticed that many drivers (not just professional ones) seem to regard cyclists, no matter how fast they are going, as a gap in traffic, and a good opportunity to pull out.
Your argument is becoming more ridiculous and insulting to the majority of responsible cyclists.
