The International Road Traffic and Accident Database (IRTAD) was established in 1988.
The ambition of IRTAD:
- Injury accidents classified by road network;
- Road deaths by road usage and age, by gender and age or by road network;
- Car fatalities by driver/passengers and by age;
- Hospitalised road users by road usage, age bands or road network;
- Accident involvement by road user type (e.g. HGVs, LGVs) and associated victim data;
- Risk indicators: fatalities, hospitalised or injury accidents related to population or kilometrage figures;
- Monthly accident data (three key indicators);
- Population figures by age bands;
- Vehicle population by vehicle types;
- Network length classified by road network;
- Kilometrage classified by road network or vehicles;
- Passenger kilometrage by transport mode;
- Seat belt wearing rates of car drivers by road network;
- Area of state.
Selected data from the database is free to the public. Unlimited access requires membership to IRTAD, formalised by the signature of a Memorandum of Understanding and the payment of an annual subscription fee.
