and the Health Service Executive - HEO (Ref: 24/21)


The Road Safety Authority is a statutory body created by the Road Safety Authority Act 2006. It is responsible for road safety, including road safety education and awareness, road safety research and driver education, as well as driver testing, licensing and training, vehicle standards and certain road transport enforcement laws.


The RSA’s mission is to reduce the number of deaths and injuries on Irish roads and make them safer for all users. The RSA, in collaboration with key road safety partners, will soon launch a new government Road Safety Strategy for 2021-2030. The strategy will be based on the safe system approach, and will outline the evidence-based policy interventions required over the next decade to meet ambitious target reductions in deaths and serious injuries by 2030. This strategy will provide the foundation for achieving Vision Zero by 2050, i.e. no deaths or serious injuries on Irish roads, which is a commitment in the Programme for Government.
