I would imagine so. A little enforcement of the rules of the road would go a long way to reducing the number of casualties but that's about as likely as something with a very low probability.

66% of accidents were outside Dublin but 100% of fatalities were in Dublin

I suspect that  phones are now a bigger cause than either speed or gargle

It's really dangerous this time of year with all the drinking and Christmas parties, people can't get taxis so they have no other options to ring their wives to pick them up, with that many women drivers on the road late at night there's bound to be carnage.

Enforcement, enforcement, enforcement! Speed kills. Mobile phone use kills. Yet taxis racing around the roads with drivers fixated on their telephone screens is commonplace, particularly up above in Dublin. It's all great fun 'till lives are lost and/or insurance premiums increase.
