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 in seven of all fatal collisions in Northern Ireland in 2021. There were:
- 50 people killed on Northern Ireland’s roads during 2021, a decrease of six when compared with the 56 recorded in both 2019 and 2020
- 4,704 injury collisions were recorded in Northern Ireland in 2021 resulting in a total of 7,192 casualties
Based on 2020 collision data, Northern Ireland recorded 30 road deaths per million population compared with 22 in England and in Wales and 26 in Scotland.
