British Horse Society's Director of Safety, Alan Hiscox will be talking at the Road Safety Conference 2017: Prevention and protection.
A total of 1,732 people died on the UK’s roads in 2015, representing a 45% reduction in fatalities compared with 2006 and making it the second lowest annual death toll on record. Despite the unprecedented improvements to road safety in the last decade, some campaigners have voiced concerns that the decline in road deaths is beginning to stagnate. The increase in accidents involving drivers on mobile phones and the growing number of cyclists on our roads present a set of fresh challenges to those tasked with protecting lives and preventing serious injuries. To tackle these problems, Highways England has adopted the internationally recognised “Safe Systems” approach to educated drivers as well as making roads and vehicles safer.
Leading experts will provide insights into how to keep motorists, cyclists and pedestrians safe. Learn how the “safe systems” approach and the latest technology can be used to mitigate risks and prevent serious accidents.
