New RSA Figures Show Wicklow Ranks Low For Road Fatalities

65 people have died on Irish roads between January and July 15th of this year.

Dublin had the highest number of fatalities at 11, with Wicklow ranked among the lowest with 1 alongside Kildare, Waterford, Sligo, Roscommon, Westmeath and Monaghan.

New research from the RSA has found that rural roads, with speed limits of 80km per hour or higher, are the most likely places for a fatal collision to occur.

RSA CEO Sam Waide says counties Leitrim, Clare, Offaly, Laois and Carlow had no fatalities during this time.
