The conference will follow a similar format to previous years, with both Main and Fringe programmes running concurrently.
Main Conference Programme
The Main Programme will comprise the following sessions.
‘Grass roots road safety’ (Tues 12 Nov, PM)
The opening conference session will comprise a series of presentations, tailored for practitioners, covering a range of ‘grass roots’ issues such as: sustainable transport & road safety; public health & air quality; driving for work; cyclists & motorcyclists; shared space; funding; and internal ‘politics’.
Speed Dating (Tues 12 Nov, PM)
Successfully piloted in 2018, this session will comprise a series of very brief presentations (5 mins) from road safety practitioners outlining schemes/interventions they have developed for use in their local area. Click here to see how this worked in 2018.

Successfully piloted in 2017 and repeated in 2018, the focus for the Hot Topic at the 2019 conference will be 20mph limits/zones. Three speakers will debate whether 20mph limits/zones can help reduce collisions and casualties, and improve road safety.

2019 Workshops (Weds 13 Nov, PM)
The conference programme will include a series of optional workshops to be held on the afternoon of Wednesday 13 November. The facilitator(s) will give a brief introduction to the topic and then answer questions and deal with issues raised by attendees.
