The IRTAD Road Safety Annual Report 2018 provides an overview of road safety performance for 32 countries. The report outlines the most recent road safety developments across IRTAD countries and comparative data for the main road safety indicators. It also offers detailed analysis by road user, age group and type of road. It describes the crash data collection process in IRTAD countries, the road safety strategies and targets in place and information on recent trends in speeding, drink-driving and other aspects of road user behaviour.



Ireland recorded 157 road fatalities in 2017, based on provisional data, representing a 15.6% decrease when compared to 2016. The mortality rate is 3.3 deaths per 100000 population. Even if 2017 was the best year in the last three decades and is in line with the 2020 target, there are still improvements to put in place in order to reach the objective of 124 or fewer road fatalities by 2020.
