They took the lane into their own hands.

You may recall the makeshift bollards temporarily sequestering the cycle lane on Ryders Row, Dublin 1?

A video has surfaced. It’s not too exciting or revealing but does show the issue of people cycling being forced out of the contra-flow cycle track into oncoming traffic due to vehicles parking in the cycletrack.

The planters/bollards worked and after they went in a number of drivers were noticed slowing down to pull in but drove on when they realised they couldn’t.

In fairness.

Free the lanes.

Vigilante ‘Clampers’ move to highlight a total absence of parking enforcement on the footpaths of Phibsborough Road, Dublin 7.

Cycle and Road Safely groups around the world have sat up and taken notice, but can Dublin City Council? Can An Garda Siochana?

Hey Dublin City Council, can you tell me why the bicycle lane is out of commission on George’s Lane?

It Seems to be entirely given over to private construction vehicles. Bike lane signs have also removed (top pic)…



This afternoon (3pm).

George’s Lane, Dublin 7.

There are actually MORE vehicles in that lane now. They clearly don’t care. At least until the gardai ticket them!
