Background The Health Research Board (HRB) collected information on 2014 road traffic fatalities from closed coronial files on behalf of the RSA in the context of the National Drug-Related Death Index (NDRDI). The National Drug-Related Deaths Index (NDRDI) is an epidemiological database which records all deaths due to drug and alcohol poisoning, and all deaths among drug users and those who are alcohol dependent.

In 2012, the Road Safety Authority (RSA) contacted the Health Research Board (HRB) to explore the possibility of collaborating with the NDRDI in order to access data on fatal RTCs contained in the coronial files and also extend the remit of the NDRDI to include all RTCS, not only those which fulfilled the NDRDI inclusion criteria. The analysis in this report relates to data collected on fatal RTCs for year of death 2014.
