Restrictions were lifted on Friday allowing people to travel beyond their county, and with higher traffic volumes expected over Christmas, the RSA has called on drivers to allow additional time for journeys, take breaks and to be extra vigilant for vulnerable road users.
“Emergency services personnel have first-hand experience of dealing with the aftermath of road crashes daily,” said Sam Waide, CEO of the RSA.
“That’s why we wanted our latest road safety appeal, in response to the increase in deaths, to be a direct appeal from them. They have witnessed the devastating consequences of road trauma and, as they say themselves, what’s happening is needless and utterly preventable.
