Sinn Féin - On Your Side

McGuigan calls for cyclists protection

11 June, 2018 - by Philip McGuigan


National Bike Week should be marked by adopting a campaign urging motorists to keep a safe distance from cyclists, the North Antrim Sinn Féin MLA Phillip McGuigan has said.

Phillip McGuigan commented: "Today marks the beginning of National Bike Week in Ireland.

"At this weekend's Sinn Féin Ard Fheis I will be putting forward a motion calling on public bodies across Ireland to adopt the 1.5m campaign.

"This campaign encourages drivers to keep to a safe distance of 1.5m when overtaking cyclists.

"We need to do all we can to promote road safety for everyone and this will be another step in the right direction."
