Road safety practitioners will deliver a series of quick-fire presentations relating to road safety education, enforcement or engineering, as part of the 2018 National Road Safety Conference.
The 10th edition of the National Conference will take place at The Grand in Brighton on 27-28 November and is once again sponsored by Colas, insurethebox and Jenoptik Traffic Solutions. This will be the second time the conference has been held in Brighton, with the 2014 event also staged at the same iconic venue.
In total, around 200 people have already registered to attend.
A session titled ‘speed dating for road safety professionals’ forms part of the main agenda and will include a series of five minute presentations, backed by poster presentations, outlining schemes and interventions they have implemented, or are currently implementing.

2018 National Road Safety Conference
The 2018 National Road Safety Conference will set out to demonstrate how road safety professionals can combine the four ‘E’s’ – education, enforcement and engineering, underpinned by evidence – to deliver casualty reduction improvements, despite challenging budgetary and resource constraints.
The 2018 National Conference will also once again include The Fringe which runs alongside the main programme, and on day two the ever popular Question Time session.
16 organisations have already registered to participate in the exhibition which runs alongside the conference and will be limited to around 20 exhibitors.
