    And on a completely different matter, the next time someone complains about cyclists not using cycle lanes...

    Oh, surely not. Most seem to pride themselves on being so environmentally friendly.

    Anyway, For the slow learners, I thought it was obvious I was merely taking the contrarian position for the proposes of discussion. I even mentioned the nonsense of such a position.

    Oh well.

    There has to be a stop to the mayhem and custodial sentences are required for cyclists who break a red light.

    So, two cyclists using a cycle lanes. On that logic you could easily say "next time someone complains about drivers using the road."

    Look again. Pay attention to something that may be obstructing full use of the cycle lane.

    They all benefit enormously from the hugely expensive road infrastructure yet do not contribute anything at all.

    I would suggest an annual flat road tax of 100 euro per bicycle .

    In the matter of insurance cyclists must also contribute to the insurance pool as some of them cause damage and injury.i suggest a basic premium of 50 euro.

    It is deeply unjust that the only road users paying to use our roads are motorists.

    Cyclists must now start to share the financial burdens of road use

    What do other posters think.?

    Two cars, one blocking the footpath, the other blocking the footpath and the cycle lane.

    Commonly done by Gardai when parking in the Phoenix park.

    Yeah, yeah, I saw it. So what? There are likely 1000's of pictures of cyclists being fvckbags too. So what's your point?

    I thought my point was obvious. But if you missed the big black 2 ton car blocking the cycle path, it's probably no surprise you missed my point too
