  1. The 6th fatality so far in 2015. Six too many.
    ‘A 43-year-old man who was cycling has died in University Hospital Galway after a collision with a driver of a car on Thursday’.
    I do not see them as ‘collisions’ but rather as lethal impacts perpertrated by motorised vehicles where the cyclist always comes off worst and the ‘the driver of the car was reported to be uninjured in the collision’. Quite so and as one would expect from the hugely unequal mass and velocity differentials between the two vehicles.
    Our present traffic management regime does not protect those who chose to cycle.
