26.07.12 - Last chance to play your part in Irelandís road safety future
The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is reminding members of the public to submit their views on how to improve safety on the roads before the deadline this Friday 27th July.
The views of the public and other road safety stakeholders are currently being reviewed and considered for inclusion in the next Road Safety Strategy.
The new strategy, which is due to be published in December, will cover the period 2013 to 2020 and will replace the current strategy which will expire at the end of this year.
Details of the consultation process plus an online facility for making submissions to the strategy, is currently available on www.rsa.ie
Mr Noel Brett, Chief Executive, Road Safety Authority said: “Since we started the public consultation process for the next Road Safety Strategy, we have been inundated with submissions from members of the public on how to improve safety on our roads. This is a real testament to how the people of Ireland have taken road safety into their hearts and minds and are making a real effort to share their views on the future of road safety in Ireland.”
“We all use the roads every day, so we should all have a say in how we share the roads with each other and how we can work together to reduce the number of deaths and injuries on our roads. So get involved in this process and make your voice heard by submitting your ideas before the deadline this Friday.”
Those wishing to make suggestions by post should ensure their submission takes up no more than two full A4 pages per area (i.e. Education, Engineering, Enforcement and Evaluation) and can be posted directly to: Road Safety Strategy 2013-2020, Road Safety Authority, Moy Valley, Primrose Hill, Ballina, Co Mayo. They can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, submitted online at www.rsa.ie or via the RSA’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/RSAIreland
