Road Transport Safety Conference on Serious Injuries

Minister for Transport, Tourism & Sport Leo Varadkar  launched the Government’s fourth Road Safety Strategy on Thursday March 28th at the Road Transport Safety Conference on Serious Injuries in the Main Conference Hall at
Dublin Castle.

The Strategy – ‘Closing the Gap’ - will run until 2020 and aims to make Ireland one of the safest countries in terms of road deaths in the EU. It will also focus on new measures to reduce the number and severity of serious injuries arising from road collisions.

The new Strategy sets a specific target for 2020 to reduce the number of road deaths to 124 a year (from 162 in 2012) and serious injuries to 330 per year (from 485 in 2012). This drop is necessary to close the gap between Ireland and other best performing countries such as the UK, Netherlands, Sweden and Australia.”
