I raise the issue of the serious number of road deaths that are happening all the time, in addition to the serious number of collisions that are happening, especially at weekends, involving so many young people and tragic deaths. There was a 20% increase in road fatalities in 2023 and, for the first couple of months of this year, we have seen an increase even on that. While I understand some work is being done in respect of this issue, it is about enforcement of the legislation we have. That requires more adequate policing resources to be put in place to catch more people who are speeding on our roads and driving dangerously.
