Conference will bring together slower speed leaders
The 4th Annual 20mph Conference – coordinated by PTRC Education and Research Services, 20’s Plenty for Us, Living Streets and TAG – is using the theme “a slower pace makes a better place”.
The conference is aiming to bring together “leading minds in road safety and cutting edge researchers on implementing slower speeds”. Speakers will discuss the impact slower speeds can have on health, vision and pollution.
Cost effective implementation, maximising driver compliance through co-production marketing, risk and liability issues, and the DfT’s new guidance on 20mph limits will also be examined.
Rod King, campaign director of 20’s Plenty for Us, said: “Many local authorities are implementing wide area 20mph limits for most of their urban and residential roads.
“It is becoming clear that once a local authority fully considers all of its road users and its community needs then the only sensible solution is that 20’s plenty where people live, work, shop, learn, walk and cycle. This conference shows them how best to achieve that objective.”
The conference, to be held at Coventry Transport Museum on 23 May, will be chaired by Phil Moore, senior vice president of TAG (Technical Advisors Group). Norman Baker under-secretary of state for transport, will provide a video presentation.
