The number of people who died in fatal road traffic collisions fell across Sligo, Leitrim and Donegal in 2021 compared to 2020 according to the Road Safety Authority.
A total of 13 people lost their lives in fatal road traffic collisions in 2020 compared to eight in 2021.
There were no road deaths in Co. Leitrim in 2021 along with Offaly and Carlow.
A total of 134 people died on Irish roads in 2021 compared to 146 in 2020.
Sam Waide, RSA Chief Executive, RSA said a decrease in road deaths and serious injuries is welcome but we must not accept 134 lives lost and 1,091 serious injuries last year.
He said ‘Vision Zero’ aims to reduce road deaths and serious injuries by 50% by 2030 and to eliminate road deaths and serious injuries by 2050.
