High Priority for Road Safety in Irish EU Presidency

18 January 2013

Key elements of the new Irish Road Safety Strategy will focus on serious injury reduction, tackling repeat road traffic offenders and developing better roads. Provisional 2012 figures from the Irish Road Safety Authority show that 161 people lost their lives on Irish roads in 2012, 25 fewer than in 2011 and 51 fewer than in 2010 when 212 people lost their lives on Irish roads. 30% of these were under 25 years of age.

ETSC reports that Ireland will call for a focus on road safety during its EU Presidency.
