World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims events will be celebrated across the country today.
It is the 12th year that ceremonies have been held in Ireland, in memory of the tens of thousands of people who have lost their lives.
To date this year, 130 people have died in collisions including 36 pedestrians, two more than the same time last year.
Since the recording of fatalities began in 1959, 24,255 people have died in collisions while more than 80,000 others have been seriously injured.
Gardaí have called on all road users to use today to reflect on their behaviour.Tags:
