City Road Safety Plan

Dublin City Council adopted the first Road Safety Plan in the country in 1998 with the objective of improving road user behaviour and reducing road collisions in the City Council area in line with European and National targets. The fourth Dublin City Council Road Safety Strategy covers the period to 2020.

Traffic Cordon Count

Since 1980, Dublin City Council has been conducting traffic counts at 33 locations around the cordon formed by the Royal and Grand Canals.

The counts are conducted during the month of November each year. Counts are conducted at each location for each vehicle category. Since 1997 the counts have been conducted over the period 07.00 to 10.00hrs.
