It’s time to register for Festival live sessions

10.00 | 7 October 2020 | |

Registration is now open for the four live discussion sessions being held as part of the Festival of Road Safety.

These sessions will be hosted on Zoom Webinar and are limited to 100 participants per session. These places will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

They cover a number of current road safety issues: cycling, the school run, autonomous vehicles and e-scooters.

When registering, attendees have the option to submit a question in advance, and will also be able to ask questions/submit comments during the session itself.

The Festival of Road Safety replaces the National Road Safety Conference and will run throughout November 2020.
