    The cyclist in Ireland has zero respect for anyone but themselves.

    An Garda Síochána are responsible for this level of deterioration in cyclist culture in Ireland as they look the over Ireland.

    In nations like the Netherlands, Denmark and Switzerland, the cyclist culture will obey the rules of the road and law. If they cycle on a pedestrian footpath they will reduce speed and cycle with care and responsibility.

    cyclists in Ireland are nothing more than selfish thinking and highlighting their own safety as an excuse to break red lights mount and dismount footpaths without care, hardly ever signalling or abiding by any code of conduct.

    Yes, I drive and make way for cyclists on the road and always check my mirrors for them and pedestrians. When I cycle, I do so on the road and use the road by the rules of the road and never had an accident while walking, cycling or driving…..simple! Everyone knows what I am going to do because I go by a set of agreed legal rules of actions.
