Some day, in the future, motorist will be asked to slow down, rather than asking cyclists to dismount http://t.co/jVZ3NHMWsd

It’s our old friend the “cyclists please dismount” sign placed at a road works site.
Yes, because every time a cycle lane is been driven in, or otherwise blocked, cyclists need to dismount. So, Dublin City Council needs to buy a permanent version of the above sign for that cycle lane, as it’s often blocked by trucks loading and taxis off loading passengers.
They may also think about buying a whole load of dismount signs. The council could place them permanently beside every cycle track sign in the city — just in case anybody decides to park in the cycle lane. Like at these near-by cycle lanes:
Sometimes cycle lanes are just blocked by signs…
…but, in this case, they forgot the dismount sign!?
