RSA concerned about rise in road deaths

The Road Safety Authority has expressed deep concern at the number of lives lost on Irish roads in 2013.

There has been a sharp increase in road fatality figures with 190 people killed over the 12-month period, that is up 28 on last year.

Speeding, driver error, fatigue and mobile phone use while driving are some of the contributing factors.

Brian Farrell, communications manager with the RSA says it is tragic to see so many lives lots in one year.
