2017 National Road Safety Conference

1 February 2017

The 2017 National Conference will take place at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Manchester Airport on 14th -15th November. In a break from tradition, the 2017 conference is being organised by a committee drawn from Road Safety GB North West, North East and Yorkshire & Humber regions, rather than a single regional team.

The event will look to build on the success of the 2016 conference in Bristol, which saw a record number of attendees (310+).

Delegate registration for 2017 is now open, with more than 100 people already registered to attend.

The committee is particularly keen to hear from road safety practitioners who would like to present at conference, and papers are invited on the following themes:

Public health, sustainability, active travel & road safety casualty reduction

  • Partnership working, overcoming barriers, making the initial approach etc
  • Sharing intelligence, data, resources, budgets, funding etc
  • Encouraging more people to cycle and walk (for health and environmental benefits) while recognising the increased road casualty risk (and addressing this)

The use of Behavioural Change Techniques (BCTs) in road safety

  • What are BCTs?
  • How can BCTs be deployed in road safety interventions?
  • Case studies of interventions featuring BCTs

Driverless cars: a Utopian dream or road safety nightmare?

In addition, there will be a catch-all ‘topical topics’ session and a fringe programme, and as such papers covering topics outside these themes are also welcome. All that is required to submit a paper at the initial stage is a working title and single paragraph summary, along with a brief biog of the presenter(s). The first deadline for submissions is Friday 10 March, by email to Nick Rawlings. Alternatively, for more information contact Nick Rawlings on 01379 650112.
