In 2011 more people died in Ireland from opiate overdose (211) than in road accidents (186). Neither toll is acceptable and both figures conceal great sadness and loss. However, a key difference between them is that while road safety has rightly become a national and societal priority for action, virtually nothing is being done about deaths from opiate overdose.
