Road safety: What Works and What Does Not Work?
Tuesday 12th October 2021 at 14:00-15:00
Earlier this year the Global Road Safety Facility at the World Bank published a report looking into what road safety interventions were the most effective. The report is designed to provide a simple list of successful interventions to those working across the world, but especially in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC). The report is aligned to safe system elements; safe roads and roadsides, safe speeds, safe road users, safe vehicles, post-crash care, plus road safety management.
In response to the report Agilysis will be running two webinars alongside UK road safety professionals to separately explore ‘what works’ and ‘what doesn’t’. This first webinar will look at the interventions for which there is strong evidence around reductions in fatal and serious collisions. Our presenters will outline where the greatest opportunities for success lie. This will include examples of schemes already in place in the UK as well as opportunities for future changes.
Our second webinar will review what doesn’t work or where there is a lack of evidence about success.
Both webinars will be run live with the opportunity for attendees to ask questions of the panel.
