Re: Re: Dublin’s Bicycle Clutter
FXR has published more than enough evidence to show that cyclists do not, in general, have any regard for their own lives
That’s a matter of opinion not of fact. It’s not an opinion I share. He’s put up various videos of cyclists behaving badly. If any of the rest of us had as little to do with our time we could post videos of other road users doing the same. What is an indisputable fact is that some cyclists behave dangerously, some don’t. The same can be said for taxis, busses, pedestrians, motorists, unicyclists, hovercraft operators and all the other people that move around our streets. His perverse obsession with deamonising and ranting about the evils of cyclists is childish and devoid of any useful purpose.
Whether it’s a lust for cycling taxation, describing them as suicidal or whining about having to see locked bicycles in public it’s clear the issue is he hates cyclists and is not open to discussion. There’s not much to talk about as FXR has no meaningful solutions to the problems he highlights apart from sending all cyclists to Leitrim and floating it off the coast. It’s always a shame when someone becomes so blinded by their obsession they loose the ability to make a contribution.
