International assignment for Road Safety GB chair

12.35 | 17 January 2012 | | 3 comments

Alan Kennedy, chair of Road Safety GB, is a guest speaker at a road safety seminar organised by The British Embassy in Warsaw, Poland on 23 February.

Poland’s road casualties are among the worst in the EU; implementing the EU Infrastructure Safety Directive 2008/96/EC on road safety management, and achieving a 50% reduction in road deaths, is a priority.

The seminar, UK Best Practice in Road Safety, will showcase UK policy, expertise and road safety solutions to local authorities and the private sector in Poland.

Alan will outline the role of Road Safety GB and how it leads on road safety delivery. He will also discuss the importance of communications and refer to the roles of the Road Safety Knowledge Centre, the newsfeed on the Road Safety GB website and the national conference. He will also explain how local authorities deliver road safety in the real world, using data-led initiatives, national programmes and training.

Alan’s presentation will be delivered to a high profile Polish audience including members of the National Council for Road Traffic Safety, advisory organisations, police, media and parliamentarians.

    Charles, I had intended to touch on this aspect of driving, and in light of recent activity on this website regarding driver distraction, I will certainly place a greater emphasis on it. However, a 20 minute slot, through a translator, does not afford me that much time to get all of my information across. But I will do my best.

    With respect Mr Kennedy, as guest speaker at your forthcoming seminar in Poland, it will afford you an ideal platform to air your members’ concern over in-car driver distraction systems.
