Welsh road safety professionals prepare for annual conference
Road safety professionals from across Wales will meet at the annual Road Safety Wales Conference in Carmarthenshire on 26 June.
Topics for the morning session will include: a presentation on safety cameras by Christopher Hume, partnership manager for GoSafe; the legal process of a road traffic collision explained by Roger Henderson from Lyons Davidson Solicitors; and the science of road safety education, by Darren Divall from TRL.
The afternoon session will comprise: Ben Johnson from Transport for London who will discuss the opportunities and challenges in making London’s streets safer; a presentation on alcohol and road safety by Andrew Misell from Alcohol Concern Cymru; Carys Thomas from Sustrans Cymru who will discuss “Safer Streets for All”; and Pat Melly of Dyfed Powys Police who will present The National Driver Offender Retraining Scheme.
Susan Storch, Chair of Road Safety Wales, said: “Since the early 1990s this annual gathering of road safety professionals from across Wales has both educated us and stimulated new ideas.
“I hope that delegates will return to their regions freshly challenged and motivated to deliver casualty reduction schemes that will contribute to achieving the targets set out in the Road Safety Framework for Wales.”
