Whether it yields results or not with @DubCityCouncil, almost every business currently open and trading on South Anne St has signed a petition in support of full pedestrianisation, the removal of cars from the street & allowing for space to be used for outdoor seating 👍 https://t.co/YWBK9TCpk7

Electric cars are not the answer. More congestion is not the answer. Cheaper parking is not the answer. https://t.co/CxCJUibwtp

You have no idea how nice towns without cars can be until you spend some time in them. It is like the difference between night and day: you can see, smell, hear, breath, move. You can let your thoughts and feet wander. The absence of cars and their infrastructure invites life. https://t.co/jSWJDm4aK9

This is the Netherlands.....Notice anything?  @Alan_Dillon
You don’t make cycling safe by obliging every rider to dress up as if for urban warfare. You do it by creating a road system that insulates them from fast-moving and unpredictable road traffic.
Now,go and do your job 👍 https://t.co/8HIPQ7Ai4q

@Alan_Dillon @galwaycyclist Alan, there are lots of really effective ways to keep children safe while cycling. Mandatory cycle helmet laws are not even in the top ten and in fact have been shown to reduce take up of cycling where they have been introduced. Please reconsider this. https://t.co/EGIGuia7qA

D'Olier St is the main route from north to south of the city. Yet it's one of the most intimidating streets in Dublin. 5 lanes in one direction for motor vehicles, and not even a painted bike lane. Incredibly hostile and wasteful space. Shouldn't this central street be better? https://t.co/UGIdBLrZqH

Great description of one of Dublins vital routes. For cyclists; hostile and intimidating . For all users ; wasteful. https://t.co/sJUv1D32tj

Quoted @transportgovuk

New laws will give local authorities the power to use CCTV to issue penalties to drivers who park illegally in cycle lanes, to make cycling… ✅ Safer ✅ Easier ✅ And more enjoyable Find out more 👉 https://t.co/V120NIWIXE #BikeWeekUK #GetPedalling https://t.co/7ecMT9LaAQ

Imagine bus mounted cameras that process fines for driving in bus lanes, illegal parking etc. Why do we still rely on Gardaí to enforce minor traffic offenses? https://t.co/ElY4zQ8oIr

Keep the wooden bridge on Bull Island Causeway & keep access for walkers, cyclists, with Island residence and disability permit-only parking. Sign now! https://t.co/iRnnOgwyDx via @UpliftIRL

I just signed this petition, will you join me? https://t.co/BCMaycndL2 via @UpliftIRL

I'm really delighted with the new contraflow cycle lane on Nassau Street but a part of me is furious that it has taken so long to do something so simple. Cycling campaigners have been calling for this to be done for over 30 years. It should have happened as part of @LuasCrossCity

Dear runners of the world: We see you. They don't hate you. They just haven't yet figured out that the problem is the amount of land our cities give to cars. You can help us fix that. Love, Bicyclists of the world

How is everyone managing social distancing on some of obstacle course footpaths in the area?

If there was ever a time to give our footpaths back to pedestrians, now would be that time. https://t.co/oAd2Hc4kv5

Vienna is taking prompt action in #COVID19 crisis and opens up many streets for pedestrians and cyclists by using in-promptu 20kmh streets. Inspiring! (via @birgithebein) https://t.co/JqKG4U0do9

Echo echo echo. The sound from @dlrcc and @DubCityCouncil while the rest of Europe get on with helping people. 👇 https://t.co/GuiANSozqk

How twitter works... Tweet says thing is a disgrace. It's quickly RTd hundreds, even thousands of times. With comments agreeing it's a DISGRACE. Someone tweets evidence showing the thing is not a thing. That in fact it's 100% FALSE. And is almost totally ignored.🙄 #cestlavie

Cycling in parks banned. Running demonised. People squished onto narrow pavements + can't avoid each other. Cars totally fine to continue driving above the speed limit, no speed limit reductions, no road closures. No new space for walking despite the world turning upside down

I'm lucky enough to live within 2km of the spectacular Phoenix Park. It has been a joy the last few days for one reason - the lack of cars. When all this is over, we should try to hold the ground that has been won back from cars in Dublin. We'll be happier and healthier for it.

Every street in NYC should have sidewalks as wide as 3 St in Park Slope, and we should take away as much space from cars as it requires to do so and ask no one’s permission https://t.co/xoXpNAH29E

The Past: In my day son, they used to let cars drive on the beach at Dollymount.

The Future: Cars? On a beach? But it's a nature reserve out there!

The Past: Well, one day in Spring 2020, they put up some bollards and that was that. No more cars (and there was much rejoicing) https://t.co/99Fa1ocSUt

The fact that so many cars are breaking the law in this photograph (and throughout Ireland) demonstrates that @RSAIreland is failing to adequately test drivers. This is clearly a case of people simply not knowing that parking on a footpath is unambiguously illegal. https://t.co/yaAXOxdNA8

1/ A thread on just how truly incompetent, downright lazy, disturbingly biased, or outright corrupt much of the US media is. The focus is $TSLA's CEO, @elonmusk. Bear with me...
