Promotion of Road Safety
In 1996, in response to the rising number of fatalities on Irish roads, the Minister for the Environment requested the establishment of working groups for road safety at local level. The aim of the Committee is to co-ordinate the efforts of all the agencies involved with road safety in order to reduce the number of road accidents.
A Road Safety Together Committee was set up in County Galway in May, 1997, and comprises of representatives from the National Safety Council, Health Service Executive (Western Area), Gardai, elected members and staff of Galway County Council. The Committee meets on a regular basis and examines the options available to improve road safety for pedestrians, motorists and road users in general. Various projects and road safety initiatives have taken place in Co. Galway to date.
Galway County Council is actively involved in the promotion of road safety through education. The Road Safety Officer in Galway County Council is Ms. Deirdre Caulfield – Ph. No. (091) 509360. firstname.lastname@example.org
