Road Safety Working Group
Local Authority's are required by the Department of Transport to form a Road Safety Together Working Committee whose mission is to reduce the level of road deaths and serious injuries on the roads through Education, Engineering, Enforcement and Ealuation.
County Kildare's Road Safety Working Group was first established in 2007 and this group involved members of the Local Authority, An Garda Síochána, Kildare Emergency Services, the National Roads Authority and the Kildare Road Users Association. In 2009, the road safety officer restructured the working group which expanded it's current Steering group and created a number of Sub Committees.
