Ireland Garda Accident Sign
The number of deadly accidents in Ireland has dropped dramatically last year, 2010. Since record keeping was started in 1959, deadly accidents has dropped to its lowest figures. 2010 saw an already low figure of 212, but during 2011, "only" 186 people met with their maker.

Since the Irish government, through the Road Safety Authority Open link in a new window (RSA), started an active campaign to prevent road deaths in 2007, the mortality rate dropped 50%.

Of the 186 people who died, surprisingly, 45 of them were pedestrians! 105 were in cars (either the driver or a passenger), 9 were on a bicycle, and 17 were on a motorcycle (which was the same number in 2010).

34% of the dead were under 25 years of age, and 49% of the accidents occurred during the weekend. 70% of those killed on the road were male.

Not bad those figures. I wonder if it has anything to do with the new pub laws?  Irish Dancing Smiley
