Arising from the April 2017 Authority meeting with the Garda Commissioner held in public in April 2017, the Authority is now publishing the responses it has received from the Garda Síochána to a range of questions posed on Roads Policing. These are questions that were submitted in written form following the public discussion on Roads Policing in April 2017 as there was insufficient time to pursue all the areas of questioning on that day.

Q.2. Having accurate data on the role of alcohol in collisions contributes to much wider policy debates on the issue. Is the Garda Síochána confident as to the accuracy of current data relating to this and other factors contributing to collisions?

Q. 3. Do you have any statistics on collisions, which set out gender, the role of alcohol in collisions and their locations nationally?
The data set out in the tables pertains to collisions that occurred in November and December for the period 2008 to 2012. It was published by the RSA on the 30th November 2017. The data highlights the main contributory factors to fatal collisions, the counties with the highest concentration of fatal collisions, the ratio of men to women involved in Injury Collisions, data in relation to drivers tested at the scenes of injury collisions and the ratio of male to female arrested for drink driving.
