Sri Lankan delegation to meet with Road Safety GB

10.30 | 16 September 2011 | | 1 comment

A delegation from the Sri Lankan Parliament is to meet with representatives from Road Safety GB to gain insight into how road safety is delivered in the United Kingdom.

Following ‘an alarming increase in traffic accidents’ in Sri Lanka, members of the country’s transport select committee are keen to find out how other countries go about preventing road casualties, and to learn from best practice.

They have identified the UK as a model for road safety and arranged a study tour for 17 Members of Parliament who sit on the select committee. The party will be in the UK from 25 September to 1 October, during which time they will meet with Alan Kennedy (chair) and other representatives of Road Safety GB.

    Alan, tell the Sri Lankan Parliamentarians they need to first detect offenders, those who are incident and accident involved, and others in need of help and then re-educate them (Enforcement + Education) (and offender pays).
    Good luck!
