RSA fears fatalities could rise
The Road Safety Authority in Ireland says a reduction in its budget and the failure of the Government to introduce safety cameras means the recent positive trend of falling road deaths is under threat.
Noel Brett, RSA chief executive, said: “In the absence of the cameras and the reduction in RSA campaigning capacity there is a real danger of a decline in performance this year, and we face a major challenge in holding the current fatality rates.”
Mr Brett says the RSA’s budget has been reduced by €2.74m, with advertising and public relations activities particularly affected.
