Cyclists complain about wheel-grabbing Luas tracks, rough road surfaces, daydreaming pedestrians, careless drivers, car-friendly media and unhelpful gardaí.
Pedestrians and drivers complain about cyclists: especially the red-light breakers, the pedestrian-crossing blankers and the pavement dashers.
Is the problem just bad behaviour by individual road users? Is poor urban design pitting people against each other in a fight for scarce street space? And what can be done to bring peace and safety to our streets?
On the evening of Wednesday, 21 March, from 6:30pm to about 8:30pm, Dublin Inquirer and Banter will present a panel discussion of these issues.
Moderated by Banter’s Jim Carroll, the panel will include:
––Claudine Chen, cycling advocate and a member of the Dublin Cycling Campaign
––Jason Taylor, principal author of the Design Manual for Urban Roads and Streets, the government handbook on how to encourage sustainable travel in urban areas.
––Jim Waldron, of the National Private Hire & Taxi Association
The event is free, but you’ll need to grab your a ticket here to make sure you get a seat.
