The Centre of Transport Studies at UCL is hosting a free seminar which will focus on ‘understanding politicians’ and the political processes behind road safety legislation.
The seminar, ‘How to Win Friends and Influence People – Understanding politicians, policy makers and lobbyists’, will be delivered by Rob Gifford, executive director of PACTS, in London on 10 September.
The seminar synopsis says: “Effective and sustainable policy-making is achieved through a combination of political will, policy support and professional commitment. It also reflects and responds to public concerns and attitudes.
“Great Britain can point to three areas of road safety policy where such debate has occurred – seat belt wearing, drink-driving and speed policy. Each of these has been more (or less) effective. Why is that the case and what lessons can we draw from these different aspects of policy making?”
In the seminar, Robert Gifford will outline the approaches taken to each of these policy areas and the successes and failures. He will also draw conclusions about how to take road safety policy forward in challenging times.
