That cycle lane has two quite busy entrances and the cyclist is expected to yield for both of them. If planning on using the cycle path, it is far easier to join it after the petrol station.
Plus, legally he has as much right to be on the road as the driver regardless of the cycle lane!

I wouldn't use that cycle lane. It stops something like 4 times in the 40 second clip and as usual the pedestrian seems to be walking in it

MOD VOICE: One warning and one warning only. There is no legal requirement to use that path, there are several H&S issues with using several cycle paths and any discussion that excuses dangerous driving with the reason that the person should have been on the cycle path will not be tolerated. If you are unsure why not using a cycle path does not excuse dangerous driving, we can discuss it further via PM.

Gardaí in Leixlip and Celbridge are generally(!) good about cyclist choice of road/cycle lane, so would be surprised if that was an issue.
