Road Safety Conference
A total of 1,792 people were killed on the roads in Great Britain in 2016, continuing a trend that has seen the annual number of road deaths remain constant since 2010. Traffic accidents cost the economy £16.3 billion a year and put additional strain on emergency services.
In April 2017, the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency published a five year plan to make the UK’s roads safer. Measures include improvements in the way learner drivers are taught, stricter vehicle safety tests and preparing now for the expected introduction of autonomous vehicles.
As towns and cities strive to cut congestion and improve air quality by encouraging more people to cycle or walk, local authorities must have a strategy in place to improve safety standards. The Government hopes to reduce the number of road deaths by introducing tougher sentences for both dangerous cycling and drivers using mobile phones.
Join us for the Road Safety Conference where leading experts will explain the latest developments and provide insights into how to keep motorists, cyclists and pedestrians safe. Understand how a greater number of cyclists and older drivers could lead an increase in accidents, see how new technology can improve safety standards and learn how a “Safe Systems” approach could result in a significant decrease in road deaths.
