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.
Excess speed was a contributory reason in one fifth of all fatal collisions in Northern Ireland in 2020. There were:
- 56 people killed on Northern Ireland’s roads during 2020, the same number that was recorded in 2019 and an increase of one when compared with the 55 recorded in 2018
- 4,223 injury collisions were recorded in Northern Ireland in 2020 resulting in a total of 6,487 casualties
Based on 2019 collision data, Northern Ireland recorded 30 road deaths per million population compared with 31 in Wales, 26 in England and 30 in Scotland.
