The information requested by the Deputy in relation to the number of road fatalities for the years 1970, 1980, 1990, 2000 and 2006 is outlined in the following table. Since the introduction of roadside Mandatory Alcohol Testing in July 2006, there has been a downward trend in the number of collisions and road deaths on a monthly basis. The 2006 rate of 368 is the second lowest death rate on our road in the last forty years.
