Why now is a great time to be involved in road safety

Against the backdrop of a decade of austerity and stagnating road fatalities, this presentation will set out some of the key developments in road safety in the UK and internationally and highlight reasons to be optimistic as a road safety professional in 2022. The presentation also sets the scene for further presentations in this session on some of the most recent developments in UK road safety and how the industry is moving forwards in the second UN Decade of Action.
