NI Road Safety Partnership

The Northern Ireland Road Safety Partnership aims to change attitudes towards speeding. It also aims to reduce the number of road traffic casualties through education and by detecting speed at locations with a history of collisions and where there is evidence of speeding.

Statistics

Excess speed was a contributory factor in one quarter of all fatal collisions in Northern Ireland in 2017. There were:

  • 63 people killed on Northern Ireland’s roads during 2017 which is a decrease of 5 compared with 68 recorded in 2016 and 11 less than that of 2015
  • 6,081 injury collisions were recorded in Northern Ireland in 2017 resulting in a total of 9,184 casualties

Compared to other areas in the UK and based on 2016 collision data, Northern Ireland has:

  • the highest number of injury road traffic collisions per 100,000 population - approximately 49 per cent more than England and over twice the rate recorded in Scotland and Wales
  • the highest number of injury road traffic collisions per 10,000 licensed vehicles
  • the highest number of road traffic injury collision deaths by region with 3.7 deaths per 100,000 population
