Motion in the name of Councillor Dermot Lacey (deferred from Transportation SPC meeting of 28th June, 2017): This Committee requests an overall examination of cycle lane routes junctions to provide dedicated traffic lights for cyclists and provide filter arrows for drivers preventing them from turn left or right with the appropriate signal when cyclists are crossing the side road.


Motion in the name of Councillor Ciarán O'Moore: That the City Council change its policy of not providing double yellow lines on corners simply because existing legislation already provides that cars are not allowed to park 5m from the corner. There should be exceptions considered for areas with no traffic warden to enforce the rules, where parking on certain corners is constant, and where a potential hazard is sufficient to justify the installing of double yellow lines. With no Garda resources available and no traffic wardens in most areas it is not possible to monitor parking on corners. The current policy plays a part in failing to prevent dangerous parking offences. Supplying double yellow lines is a visual aid that acts as a deterrent to offenders.


Motion in the name of Councillor Ciarán Cuffe: That the Manager prepare a report on options for how the City Council might provide for the charging of electric vehicles owned by residents in terraced houses or apartments who are unable to charge their vehicles at home, and for how the City Council might further support electric vehicles such as the provision of charging both on street and in other locations, and other regulatory options available to us that would favour this form of transport with lower emissions than conventionally fuelled cars.
