Ageing and Safe Mobility: 21st Century Streets.
01 September 2020 Chakrabati Lecture Theatre, Oxford Brookes University.
In recent years the emphasis in research and among practitioners has often focussed on interventions for drivers as they age. In 2019, the Department for Transport awarded a grant to the leading road safety charity, RoadSafe, to develop a knowledge transfer programme to take forward the work on older drivers by widening its scope to address the risks to older road users, concentrating on the most vulnerable.
This event will provide an important opportunity to work across sectors to develop insight and understanding. Developed in conjunction with the British Society of Gerontology and drawing on international good practice, the day will involve presentations, panel discussions and workshops to highlight some of the mobility challenges and solutions for an ageing population.
