The Garda Síochána Act 2005 makes provision for the compilation and publication of crime statistics by the Central Statistics Office (CSO), as the national statistical agency, and the CSO has established a dedicated unit for this purpose.

I have requested the CSO to provide statistics directly to the Deputy relating to the number of recorded offences in respect of incidents of driving in charge of a vehicle while over the legal alcohol limit.
