Gay Byrne, chairman of the Road Safety Authority, said: "There are 39 people alive and well today because road users made better choices in 2009.

"Choices not to speed, not to drive while tired and to wear a high visibility jacket when walking. We truly have an emerging culture of road safety in Ireland.”
