Who we are

Our structure

How our organisation is structured to help deliver on our mission.

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) was established in 2006 as a statutory public body under the Road Safety Authority Act 2006.

The RSA is an agency of the Department of Transport and has its own non-executive board as well as its own leadership team team.

Since 2006, the role of the RSA has expanded and statutory functions have been added to our core road safety remit.
