We’re looking to spin off this tool for collecting data on cycling safety in the city. Anyone interested in getting involved is invited to a workshop on 18 March.
So far, cyclists have marked 62 collisions with Luas tracks on our Cycle Collision tracker. These accidents are clustered in three areas in the city centre.
On our Cycle Collision Tracker, cyclists have reported accidents and near misses at roundabouts. Last month, a woman was hit by a lorry at one, and died.
Six cyclists have logged accidents on our cycle-collision tracker that mentioned potholes or uneven surfaces, and another cyclist mentioned cobblestones.
At several spots around the city centre, cyclists have trapped their wheels in the Luas tracks near site works, leaving them with injuries.
On a strip on James’ Street where cyclists and the Luas are supposed to share the road, many on bikes opt to take to the pavement instead.
Here are a few big picture statistics from our cycle collision tracker data.
In the third installment of our cycling-safety series, we zoom in on a Portobello intersection that three readers have tagged as dangerous on our collision-tracking map.
We’ve found an intersection in Rathmines that could do with some adjustments to make it safer for cyclists.
We’ve found an intersection in Dublin’s city centre that appears to be particularly dangerous for cyclists. And we have some ideas on how to improve it.
