Re: Re: Cork Transport
Just wondering, but with all the recent press interest in the number of the deaths on the roads, is the following true.
As it stands, Ireland has one of the highest rural to urban population ratios in Europe, if not the very highest, meaning that a much higher proportion of people in Ireland live in the country side than any other country.
Due to this fact, people in Ireland would be driving on Regional roads more than in other countries.
Isn’t this an obvious explanation for the amount of crashes on our roads which no-one seems to be seeing ?
I mean, us and New Zealand have exactly the same death rate of 10 in 10,000 while a more urban based country like Britain has only 5 in 10,000
