Leitrim and Carlow are the only counties without a road fatality this year

So far this year, 159 people have died on the roads in the Republic of Ireland.

The RSA have announced that 159 people have died on the roads between January-October of this year. Sadly, this figure represents  a 30 person increase in the amount of fatalities that were recorded when compared to this exact date in 2015.

Unsurprisingly, the largest amount of deaths have occurred in two of the most populated counties, Dublin and Cork, where 18 people sadly lost their lives.

There was also a considerable amount of fatalities on the roads of Limerick (14), Meath (11) and Donegal (10), while on the other end of the spectrum, Carlow and Leitrim are the only counties where road fatalities haven't occurred.

As always, be safe when driving.
