Letters: Easy ride for cyclists

Dublin City Council has called for a law to force drivers to keep 1.5 metres from cyclists when overtaking.

However, given our narrow and congested roads, how will motorists by able to comply with this?

And what about the many cyclists who disregard road rules by using footpaths, whizzing through red lights and going the wrong way down one-way streets?

While I accept cyclists have a dangerous time on our roads, they too have to take responsibility for their own safety.
