A joint presentation at the National Road Safety Conference 2012 will look at why the number of casualties on Surrey’s roads has halved in the past four years.
The presentation will be delivered by Iain Reeve, assistant director of economy, transport and planning at Surrey County Council, and Louise Lloyd, chartered statistician at the Transport Research Laboratory (TRL).
Their presentation, ‘The link between casualties and demographic data – and the importance of vehicle design’, will feature in the ‘Getting results & new ways of working’ session on the afternoon of Wednesday 14 November.
Iain Reeve’s career includes spells at the Department for Transport and the Government Office for the South East where he chaired multi-modal studies and helped local authorities prepare local transport plans.
He was head of transport policy at Hampshire County Council before joining Surrey County Council five years ago, first as head of transport and more recently as assistant director of economy, transport and planning.
Louise Lloyd is a chartered statistician based in TRL’s road safety department. She is experienced in experimental design, inference and Bayesian modelling with applications across all areas of transport.
Her work has included evaluating the effectiveness of speed indicator devices; assessing the influence of traffic police enforcement on road user behaviour; monitoring mobile phone and seatbelt use; and evaluating the effect of the recession on accident numbers.
