Want free bicycle lights? The RSA are giving them away via their Facebook page, or, if you’re in Dublin, Gardai in Dublin will be handing out free lights at a number of locations this week. Tomorrow gardai will be at Guild St on North Wall Quay, as they tweeted this afternoon:

They were already giving lights to cyclists on Wilton Place, as pictured here:

    Wish I could get some light for my kids

  2. Great the RSA is a national body and give out free lights to people in Dublin in a well-lighted area. In other words the rest of the country can buy their own lights where they needed most what a corrupt kip.

  3. They regularly give lights out on their Facebook page and will post then anywhere in Ireland.

  4. You can also buy them for €20 in any bike shop. Only half the cost of an on the spot fine!
