Rolling stops

Now that Dublin has a pubic bicycle rental scheme it would be nice to see more sensible legislation for cyclists. The Minister for Transport has undertaken to do away before the end of 2009 with the foolish and dangerous statutory requirement (thanks so much for that, PDs, I'm glad your party failed before you could top that piece of idiocy) to use cycle tracks where they are provided and regardless of how badly designed, constructed or maintained they might be. Here's another suggestion for you, Minister, and while you're at it, why not allow bicycles making a left turn treat a red light as a Stop sign?
