The Department has not made an assessment.
The Department has adopted the Safe System approach to road safety that features elements of a Vision Zero approach. This is reflected in our 2019 Road Safety Statement, which focuses through its actions on three of the five pillars of the Safe System approach: safer people, safer vehicles and safer roads.
The effect of this approach should be to raise standards and improve coordination, so that avoidable road deaths and injuries are reduced to an absolute minimum.
