A YouTube video posted on Tuesday is going viral pretty quickly because of how relatable it is to all of those who choose to cycle in order to get around. 

Posted by Cusack Stand, it films an Irish road in Colaiste Choilm, Ballincollig in Cork from a bus and focuses on the cycle lane, or lack of it. 

The caption on the video reads: "The reason why Ireland can't have nice things. Why should Ireland invest in cycle lanes when no cars actually observe it.

"Complete indifference by motorists towards cycle infrastructure means its just too dangerous to cycle in Ireland, particularly for young people."

The clip shows numerous cars parked on the cycle lane making it impossible for cyclists to use it. 

Also, towards the end, one of the cars that is parked in the cycle lane pulls out in front of the bus and only for the quick reaction from the bus driver, would have caused a serious accident.
