Jeremy Phillips comment on 2020 International Safer Roads Conference

09.18 | 30 October 2018 |

Road Safety GB has been invited to help organise a major international road safety conference which is next being staged in the USA in May 2020.

The International Safer Roads Conference is a triennial event, which next takes place in Richmond, Virginia.

Road Safety GB’s invitation to join the organising committee follows a presentation delivered by Jeremy Phillips, Road Safety GB director of research, at the 2017 edition in New Zealand (see pic above).

Jeremy Phillips said: “Road Safety GB is delighted to have been invited to participate in this conference and our involvement reflects Safer Roads International’s interest in the behavioural as well as materials and structural side of road safety delivery.

“I would encourage those working in road casualty reduction in Britain to submit papers for consideration by the conference committee.

“A broad range of themes will be considered and I think it’s important that the behavioural sciences especially are represented – either by researchers, practitioners or both.

“I would personally also like to see proposals from those working in collision investigation and data analysis, and anyone with experience of evidence led policy making, which I think would add value as cross cutting themes on an agenda that is likely to attract a broad spectrum of interest.”
