HOW SAFE ARE BRITAIN’S MAIN ROADS? BRITISH EURORAP 2006 RESULTS
The death toll on Ireland’s roads over the last 30 years is about 20,000, although advances in vehicle and road engineering and changes in the behaviour of road-users mean that the number of people killed each year is now half what it was 30 years ago. Containing the first risk-rate map for the island of Ireland, the results detail the potential priorities for route action on road sections, both north and south, that pose greater risks for their users. Key results and how Ireland compares to other active EuroRAP countries are also presented.
