Road Safety GB issues call for conference papers

09.41 | 2 February 2012 | | 3 comments

Road Safety GB has issued a call for papers for the 2012 National Road Safety Conference, which is being hosted by the Road Safety GB London region at The Britannia International Hotel, Canary Wharf, 14-15 November 2012.

The event is being promoted to more than 200 local authority road safety teams, police forces, fire services, Government departments and other stakeholders including the DfT, PACTS and the Highways Agency. More than 60 delegates have already registered to attend and final numbers are once again expected to exceed 200.

Nick Rawlings, a member of the organising team, said: “While themes have not yet been finalised, the conference committee would be interested to hear from road safety teams about how they are planning for, and operating in, a world of ever diminishing resources. And how, at a local level, road safety officers are going about the vital task of reducing casualties, despite the challenges they face?

Papers are also invited from individuals or organisations on the subject of ‘active travel and road safety’. How are road safety professionals tackling the challenge of reducing casualties in an environment where people are being encouraged to walk and cycle more? And how can road safety and active travel professionals work together to achieve their separate aims?

For more information or to submit a paper contact Nick Rawlings on 01379 650112.

    T-Kartor G B Limited have developed a web portal which will enhance road safety and travel, especially for walkers and cyclists. We would be pleased to present a paper on said portal at the conference.

    Would the conference organisers consider my paper on the subject of road safety, or would that be too contentious (or just unwelcome)?
