Road safety is a priority for Government, and the Road Safety Strategy 2007-2012, which was launched in October 2007, is the key framework for actions by the various departments and agencies involved.

The final allocation to the Department of Transport and the Road Safety Authority for this year will be published in the Revised Estimates Volume which will follow the recent Supplementary Budget Statement.

The RSA will continue its activities in 2009, making best use of both Exchequer funding and the fee income generated by the agency. The road safety strategy remains the way forward agreed by the Government, for the RSA and for all other agencies involved, with the objective of continuing to save lives and reduce injuries on our roads.
