Festival of Road Safety.

21 September 2020

Preparations for the Festival of Road Safety are gathering pace with more than 30 sessions already confirmed, including 16 presentations in a bumper Fringe programme.

Organised by Road Safety GB, the Festival of Road Safety replaces the 2020 National Road Safety Conference and will run throughout November.

There will be something happening on each of the 20 working days in November (between 2-27 Nov), and in total the organisers are planning between 40-45 Festival events – a mix of pre-recorded presentations and podcasts, and live debates, discussion groups and workshops.

The Festival will be aired free to view by all, though pre-registration will be required for some of the live sessions.

The confirmed topics to feature in the fringe programme are:

  • Changing motorcyclists’ behaviour
  • The inconvenient truth about mobile phone distraction
  • Changing behaviour at pedestrian crossings
  • Children and the roads
  • Project EDWARD
  • The National Young Rider Forum
  • Speed enforcement
  • The Road Collision Investigation Project (RCIP)
  • The London Road Safety Council President’s Challenge
  • Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs)
  • Large scale road assessment programs
  • Real Time Air Quality Monitoring
  • 2021 FirstCar Young Driver Road Safety Awards
  • Identifying and promoting active travel solutions
  • The Engage Novice Driver Initiative
  • The Pathfinder pre-licence driver development programme
