Road Safety Authority

Co. Mayo, Ballina, Co. Mayo



The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is tasked with improving safety on our roads in order to reduce death and serious injuries resulting from road collisions. The legal basis for the RSA is set out in the Road Safety Authority Act 2006. The RSA formally came into existence on 1st September 2006. 

An objective of the RSA is to bring Ireland's road safety record into line with "best practice" countries throughout the World.

The achievement of this objective will involve cooperation with many stakeholders working in the area of Road Safety, including an Garda Siochana, Education sector, Health sector, Local Authorities, Courts Service, Transport Infrastructure Ireland, International Road Safety organisations, the media and the general public.

Since its establishment in 2006, the range of functions allocated to the organisation by government and legislation has grown substantially over the years.  Further growth and diversity in functions is expected in the coming years and will be driven by our Road Safety Strategy 2021-2030 in addition to our corporate plan 2021-2024. This growth and change will be predominately driven by the transformation of road safety required across Ireland to achieve Programme for Government’s Vision Zero commitment of 50% reduction in fatalities and serious injuries by Year 2030.
