Expanding 30kmph speed limits to more parts of the city will help promote cyclist and pedestrian safety but enforcement will be key, a Fine Gael Senator has said.
Senator Catherine Noone is encouraging people in Dublin Bay North affected by the proposed changes to engage with the public consultation currently being run by Dublin City Council (DCC).
Senator Noone said: “Any evidence-led changes to improve road safety are to be welcomed but it is important that these rules are enforced.
“Without proper enforcement the potential benefits for our residential areas will be lost.
“For cyclists and pedestrians these changes will be important to make parts of the constituency more user-friendly.
“Particularly for families in our area, the proposed changes for 2020 will be especially reassuring, making the area safer for us all – cyclists, pedestrians and motorists.
“If we are serious about encouraging more people to cycle or walk, changes such as these must be pursued.
“I would encourage people to engage with the consultation that is being run by DCC. It will run until September 22nd and I believe it is important for people in Donnycarney, Beaumont and Darndale to have their say,” she added.
