YDF issues call for papers from road safety professionals

4 October 2016

Story from RoadSafety GB.

The organisers of Young Driver Focus have issued a call for papers from road safety professionals and others interested in presenting at the 2017 conference.

Young Driver Focus 2017 will be held on Wednesday 26th April 2017 at the prestigious Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall, London.

It is jointly organised by Road Safety GB, FirstCar and the RAC Foundation and in 2017 will once again be sponsored by the young driver insurer and RoadSafe partner ingenie.

Now in its fourth year, the one-day conference examines current and future thinking with regard to the challenge of reducing crashes and casualties caused by the high-risk young drivers. It is intended to be of interest to both private and public sector road safety professionals.

The conference team is currently looking at topics and themes and is aiming to publish an outline agenda by late October.

Nick Rawlings, who is coordinating the conference programme, said, “We are interested to hear from road safety professionals who are involved in the development and delivery of innovative interventions designed to reduce casualties involving young drivers.

“We are particularly keen to hear about evidence-based interventions backed by robust evaluation, or a clear plan showing how the scheme will be evaluated if it is not yet at the stage where a full evaluation has been carried out.”
