Young Driver Focus Event 2017

2 May 2017

The Young Driver Focus Event took place at the RAC Club, London last week with more than 200 delegates attending.

As all road safety professionals know, young drivers are at high risk of crashing when they obtain a full licence and begin to drive unsupervised, so therefore finding ways of reducing crashes and casualties caused by young, newly qualified drivers is a key challenge for the Government, road safety professionals and private sector organisations such as insurance companies.

Now in its fourth year, Young Driver Focus 2017 examined current and future thinking with regard to this vital issue, and what is being done now and in the future to improve the situation.

It was organised by Road Safety GB working in partnership with FirstCar, Young Driver Focus and was of particular interest to:

• Public sector road safety professionals – road safety officers, fire & rescue, police and others involved in road safety delivery
• Private sector organisations and individuals with an interest in working in partnership with the road safety profession.
