Written Answers. - Use of Footpaths.

123. Mr. Haughey asked the Minister for the Environment his views on whether motorcyclists and cyclists riding on footpaths constitute a danger to pedestrians; and his further views on whether the law in this regard is adequate. [2536/94]

Minister for the Environment (Mr. M. Smith): The driving of vehicles, including pedal cycles, on footways is prohibited under the Road Traffic General By-Laws, 1964. I am satisfied that these provisions are adequate. Enforcement, of course, is a matter for the Garda.
