Road Safety GB Conference 2011

The agenda for the 2011 Road Safety GB conference is now almost complete and includes a number of popular speakers and potentially fascinating presentations.  This year, the conference is titled ‘Road safety in changing times’ and will take place in Chester on the 15 and 16 November.

Professor Stephen Stradling is always a popular conference speaker and his presentation, ‘Diversion from prosecution: returning the crash magnets’, is scheduled for the opening afternoon.

Professor Stradling will share the findings of a study that will be published at around the time of the conference, which is evaluating the re-jigged Speed Awareness Course, the revamped Driver Improvement (now Driver Alertness) Course, and the new RIDE course for errant P2W riders.

Also on the first afternoon, Alun Humphrey, research director at the National Centre for Social Research, will discuss ‘Attitudes to Road Safety’. Alun will present findings from a national survey of people’s attitudes to road safety, and their behaviour, and investigate the relationship between the two.
