The road to Vision Zero & the Safe System Approach

Many road safety teams across the UK are either working on, or have recently published, their strategies to eliminate road deaths and serious injuries within a given timescale using the Safe System approach. This session comprises four presentations from practitioners already using the Safe System approach, as well as the results of a recent comprehensive review of the 'state of readiness' of road safety partnerships across England. The speakers will provide tips, guidance and advice that will prove useful for others about to embark on the Vision Zero journey and adopt a Safe System approach.
