Survey for cyclists who reported close passing motorists to the Gardai

IrishCycle.com has started a survey to find out the experiences and views of cyclists who have reported close passes to Gardai.

PLEASE NOTE: This survey is designed to be filled out per incident — in other words, if you have reported incidents more than one close pass, please fill out this survey, submit your response, and then click on ‘fill out another response’.

Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.

There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.

I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.

The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers

  1. A Garda patrol car that was coming towards me (on Bike) on a narrow road, revved up and came agressively closer towards me, missing me by approx.two inches max. They are obliged to take due caution, slow down and allow the cyclist pas safely. They had no siren or lights on. Who do I report that to? Their buddy’s at the station? I don’t use a cam. Pity. If I had of had one attached I would have been able to post it here.
