Pedestrian deaths doubled on Irish roads last year.

 

That's the grim New Year message from the Road Safety Authority which also reports a 13 percent increase in road deaths overall.

 

A total of 155 people died in 149 fatal road collisions in 2022 compared to 137 deaths in 2021

 

Drivers account for 39 percent of the fatalities - and almost 1 in 5 drivers and passengers killed, were not wearing a seatbelt.
