Northern Ireland Road Safety Strategy to 2020 statistics

The Northern Ireland Road Safety Strategy to 2020 Annual Statistical Report monitors the progress of the strategy against agreed targets and key performance indicators.


Northern Ireland’s Road Safety Strategy (NIRSS) to 2020, which was published in March 2011, outlines the key road safety challenges to be addressed by government between 2010 and 2020. It identified 4 key casualty reduction targets and 199 action measures for improving road safety. As a living document, further action measures have since been added; arising from the original measures or from completed research.

This report monitors the progress of the targets and key performance indicators set out in the NIRSS. Readers are strongly encouraged to refer to the ‘User Guidance’ section in Appendix 2 of this report and the Indicator Guidance Booklet when considering its findings. These will provide a fuller understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the various data sources and methodologies applied. The targets and indicators are measured against a baseline of the 2004-2008 average figures (unless otherwise stated).
