Poll: Do you feel safe on Irish roads?

Eighty people have died in road traffic collisions so far this year.

RESULTS OF AN AA survey released today show that most Irish motorists believe garda presence on the country’s roads has decreased since last year.

The research also revealed that the condition of Irish roads is a major concern for motorists.

After a Bank Holiday weekend during which five people were killed in crashes, four in ten people think that the government is not treating road safety as a priority.

So far in 2013, 80 people have lost their lives on Irish roads.

A combination of factors – a perceived lack of gardaí, a rising death toll and poor road conditions – could be seen as worrying for some drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists. How about you? Do you feel safe on Irish roads?

Poll Results:

No (1981)
I'm not sure (1239)
Yes (885)
