Pedestrian seminar fully subscribed
A ‘Pedestrian Safety Seminar’ jointly organised by TRL and Road Safety GB, which will be held during the Second UN Global Road Safety Week (6–12 May), is now fully subscribed.
This not-for-profit training opportunity for road safety practitioners will raise awareness of the dangers faced by pedestrians. During 2011, pedestrian deaths in the UK increased by 12% compared with 2010. The seminar will be held on 8 May at TRL’s headquarters at Wokingham in Berkshire.
Darren Divall, principal consultant at TRL, said: “We are delighted that the Pedestrian Safety Seminar is now fully booked.
“The event, organised jointly by TRL and the Road Safety GB Academy, is being held in support of the United Nations Global Road Safety Week.
“We have compiled a list of high-quality speakers who will provide evidence-based solutions that, when applied, can achieve significant safety benefits to pedestrians in the UK.
“This is the first continued professional development event that TRL has organised in collaboration with the newly formed Road Safety GB Academy. We hope that we can join forces in the future to continue to meet the needs of road safety practitioners in the UK.”
