About MAG Ireland
Individual responsibility and freedom are the principles underlying MAG Ireland’s policies. We believe legislation should not be introduced or allowed to stand without the use of comprehensive publicly available supporting evidence. The options of user education and other alternatives to legislation should be examined more frequently. MAG Ireland believes that motorcycling should be encouraged both as a form of transport and recreation.
|MAG Ireland’s achievements include;
In addition, MAG Ireland has thus far;
- prevented the introduction of compulsory hi-visibility clothing.
- prevented the widespread introduction of motorcycle clamping.
- secured 4% parking provision clause in the Dublin City Development Plan
- defeated the proposed requirement for three separate tests to gain a full motorcycle license in Ireland.
MAG Ireland has achieved many successes at local level and constantly works to ensure local authorities properly consider the needs of motorcyclists in their planning & activities.
