'Joining the Dots' 2017

10 January 2018

Story from Road Safey GB.

Organised by Road Safety GB in partnership with Road Safety Analysis, the third edition of ‘Joining the Dots’ will take place in London on 27th February 2018.

Under the theme ‘Making Data the Common Language of Road Safety’, the conference will once again bring together collision and casualty data analysts and those who work in connected fields – including fire and rescue services, academic institutions and public health.

The first technical session will look at ‘Compliance and Risk’ and will include a presentation from Amy McGeehin at TfL, titled ‘London’s Risky Roads; compiling a risk value using multiple datasets’.

Other topics to be covered in this include ‘Offender profiling and the ethics of segmentation’, ‘Evidence for intelligence-led policing; what do officers need?’ and ‘Legacy sites; how to justify continued investment in camera infrastructure’.

Technical Session two, ‘Data for Evaluating Schemes’ will look at:

  • Criteria for success; what does good quality road safety engineering look like?
  • Following-up schemes and evaluating impacts; short-term and long-term views
  • Scheme prioritisation
  • Data for engineers; how can analysts help?

Other presenters in the afternoon session include Pete Thomas, professor of road and vehicle safety at Loughborough University, who will showcase ‘SafetyCube DSS: an evidence base for road safety interventions’.

Jeremy Phillips, Road Safety GB’s director of research, will close the conference with a presentation titled: ‘What does the client want? A debate on what they need, what we have and how to improve decision making.’
