This week we consider and focus on the Garda role of road safety. In particular, Conn from Cork talks to us about his experiences of engaging with the Gardaí as a cyclist. The difficulties experienced in the reporting of crime points to cultural stereotyping of cyclists and a dismissal of the seriousness of the issue. We also speak to Mike McKilllen of cyclist.ie who speaks of an institutional blindness towards cyclists.
