Summit will look at ‘the way ahead’
A conference organised by PACTS next month will engage key stakeholders in open and practical debate about the future of UK road safety policy and practice.
The event, UK Road Safety Summit: The Way Ahead, will also explore the common and the different challenges across the UK and the diversity in road safety policy which has developed in the past few years.
Key topics to be discussed will include: road safety policy in the UK - Government perspectives; engineering, education, and enforcement – the post-2015 landscape; from the European to the local - delivery at each level; and how to make road safety a priority for the next Government.
PACTS says that in the run up to parliamentary elections in Europe and all parts of the UK, current road safety plans and programmes are nearing completion or being wound up. As an example, it says that the DfT “has already issued a Final Progress Update on its road safety action plan”.
PACTS also says that it, and other road safety groups, want ambitious road safety policies to feature in election manifestos.
Against this backdrop, this event is designed to provide a platform to discuss practical policy implementation.
UK Road Safety Summit: The Way Ahead will be held on 27 March in London. Click here for more information or to register to attend.
