The NI Road Safety Strategy

The Northern Ireland Road Safety Strategy aims at a one-third reduction (from the average for the period 1996-2002) in the number of people killed or seriously injured on Northern Ireland’s roads each year from the current average of 1750 to fewer than 1200 by 2012.
If this target is achieved, it is estimated that between 2002 and 2012, a total of 300 lives will have been saved and 3200 serious injuries avoided than if road deaths and serious injuries had remained at the level of the average for 1996-2000.

If this target is achieved, it is estimated that between 2002 and 2012, the lives of a total of 50 children will have been saved and 700 fewer children will have been seriously injured in road traffic collisions than if child road deaths and serious injuries had remained at the level of the average for 1996 – 2000.
