The Road Safety Authority (RSA) is tasked with improving safety on our roads in order to reduce death and injury resulting from road collisions. The legal basis for the RSA is set out in the Road Safety Authority Act 2006. The RSA formally came into existence on 1st September 2006.
An objective of the RSA is to bring Ireland's road safety record into line with "best practice" countries throughout the World.
The achievement of this objective will involve cooperation with many stakeholders working in the area of road safety, including the Gardai, education sector, health sector,local authorities, National Roads Authority, the media and of course the general public
