Retexturing to restore skid resistance
With the setting up of the Road Safety Authority (RSA) in 2006, Ireland has seen significantimprovements in tackling its road safety performance. In a recent report, published by the Brussels based European Transport Safety Council (ETSC), Ireland was ranked the sixth safest country out of the 27 EU MemberStates in terms of road safety. But further challenges undoubtedly lie ahead in maintaining and improving on this position as funding comes under pressure in the current economic downturn.The work of road safety organisations like the RSA necessarily focuses on the human factors that contributeto road crashes, such as reckless driving, driving under the influence and road safety awareness for children and teenagers.
