Dublin Needs 'Fast Lanes' So You Can Avoid Slow Walkers

We've all been there – walking at a brisk pace to meet a friend for lunch and it seems like every single slow walker in the world has been teleported to the path right in front of you. You zip in and out, overtaking them only to encounter another person slowing you down every time.
