Agenda & speakers
Delegate registration will commence at 09.00 and the conference will conclude no later than 16.00, and will be followed by a complimentary drinks reception.
The conference will be preceeded by the LRSC 2020 AGM (09.30 - 10.00).
The conference agenda is currently under development but will comprise three sessions covering the following themes:
The gig economy and road safety
This session will look at the gig economy and the pressures that come with - for example - being a self-employed courier, delivery driver/rider or private hire driver, which may significantly increase the risk of being involved in a collision - and what can be done to improve the situation?
The International Transport Forum says the rise of micro mobility ‘challenges existing regulations for urban traffic and forces policy makers to rethink them’. This conference session will look at emerging forms of transport, including e-scooters and e-bikes, and consider the actions required to make urban traffic with micro mobility safe.
The future of road safety education
This session will look at how road danger reduction is being delivered in London and on a national basis across the UK. This session will also include what promises to be a lively Question Time session with five distinguished panellists including: Liz Brooker MBE, chair of Road Safety GB; Nicola Christie, professor of transport safety at UCL and president of the LRSC; Johnathan Passmore, programme manager - violence and injury prevention, World Health Organization (WHO); and Jeremy Leach from Action Vision Zero.
