Crap cycling & walking in Ireland

Ireland – it’s got so much in common with Britain, the USA, New Zealand, Canada and Australia!
Because of the serious decline in Ireland's cycling culture, a massive increase in car ownership, a chronic problem of poor driving standards and inadequate licensing, highly questionable road engineering practices and woefully ineffective traffic law enforcement, we have had for many years in this country a traffic environment bordering on the anarchic. This is evident not just in the chaotic behaviour of many cyclists, but also in the way so many motorists routinely break the speed limit, overtake dangerously, manoeuvre unpredictably and park haphazardly (very often on the footpath).
