Bikes and The LAW!
Dublin Cycling Campaign once again are hosting a great public meeting as part of their monthly series of public presentations and discussions on topics related to cycling and better cities!
This month on Monday 9th April in our regular Central Hotel location you can come along and hear two very different presentations:
Phil Skelton is a Wexford man and a fantastic believer in the role of the bike in transport. He has campaigned solidly over the past number of years to force the introduction of a safe passing distance law, to protect cyclists on the road. His journey has been difficult and demanding, trying to juggle a stressful daily job in a hospital with his clear objective of trying to make the roads safer for cyclists. But, he has succeeded in getting the present Minister Ross to agree to introduce a Minimum Passing Distance Law. It has been a wonderful victory for cycling safety. In his presentation Phil will tell his remarkable story, and will hopefully inspire others to embark on similar journeys to make Ireland greater and safer for cycling!
Also two members of the Garda Community Policing Unit in Pearse Street (Joe Cully and James Keegan) will be there to give a talk on bicycle security and the main issues affecting cyclists and how the Community Policing Unit can support cyclists. Many of you I am sure will have plenty of questions for the Garda. This is your chance to find out what they are trying to do to help cyclists in the City, and to ask the hard questions!
Why not come along and learn some great lessons about making change happen, and also to find out what the Garda are doing for you as a cyclist?
Main presentations from 8pm to 9pm approx.
