The Authority was further charged with research into traffic accidents, the collection and analysis of statistics, publication of information and advice of a general or technical nature, investigation of laws relating to traffic and most significantly "... the attaining of the continuous co-operation and support of the community in achieving higher standards of road safety and more efficient traffic movement" (Road Traffic Authority Annual Report 1975).

Archival history

Content and structure area

Scope and content

These reports are a snapshot of vehicle registrations between 1979 - 1981, produced from a database maintained at that time by the Road Traffic Authority. Summary registration information from the database was exported to these microfiche reports at that time.

There are three reports as part of these records, produced on July 1979, September 1980 and July 1981. Each of these three reports consists of hundreds of microfiche. The information in the reports is arranged by license plate number. For each vehicle registration, the reports list the name and address of the vehicle's owner and in some cases the vehicle engine / chassis number and previous ownership details.

The reports are believed to document all vehicle registrations for the period 1979 - 1981. Earlier (and later) historical sets of vehicle registration records are not known to exist.
