Minimum Passing Distance Legislation. Help Urgently Needed!

A Private Member’s Bill on MPDL drafted by Deputy Ciarán Cannon may now proceed to the stage where it is debated in the parliament. Dublin Cycling Campaign and Cyclist.ie strongly support this proposal that has been developed by the Staying Alive at 1.5 group. But we urgently need your help in order for this bill to become law.
