The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is responsible for developing a new Road Safety Strategy for the period 2007 onwards. They went out to public consultation in October last year and I understand they have received a substantial number of suggestions and proposals as a result of this process. The RSA also engaged in a process of direct consultation with key stakeholders in December 2006.
I will not have information on the specific initiatives contained in the new Strategy until it is finalised and presented to me for approval. I expect to receive the new Road Safety Strategy in March this year and I will submit it to Government for approval shortly thereafter.
