Well, folks, we can look forward to far more cyclists on the roads, over a far greater area of Dublin, as Dublin Bike expands its services to more sites, while Fingal County Council, announces a planned rollout of a Bike Sharing scheme in the Dublin 15 area. the later having some very distinguishing and different features from the Dublin Bike services !
The one thing both of these schemes have in common is a requirement for a person to sign up to these schemes with their personal details. Another thing both schemes have in common is a total failure to take any form of responsibility to ensure their clients are suitable persons, properly informed as to their (the clients ) responsibilities in the use of the equipment supplied by these bikes schemes!
Now if a person wishes to purchase a firearm, that person goes to a gunsmith, selecting the weapon of their choice, giving their personal details leaves the required monies with the gunsmith, as also the selected firearm. Then the purchaser processed to apply for a firearm license and it is only when the purchaser is actually in possession of that firearm license, are they permitted to take physical possession of the said firearm!
Now here at streetdogs.blog, the word on the street, feels the question to be asked, is why cannot a similar system be operated in respect of, Fingal and Dublin Bike, as also Bicycles sales outlets. Should they not be required to withhold their products, services from their clients, until they, the clients, can produce a pass certificate for a test of their appropriate knowledge and understanding of the Rules of the Road before they, the suppliers of the goods and or services, releasing such goods or services to their clients.
