Key speakers include:
- Ellen De Pauw from the Transportation Research Institute, Hasselt University, Belgium, who will review what impact the Flemish government's lower speed limits had on crashes, especially those involving serious injuries and fatalities.
- Henk Stipdonk from the SWOV Institute for Road Safety Research, Netherlands, who will present research demonstrating the link between vehicles involved in speeding offences and vehicles involved in crashes
- Professor John Parkin from London South Bank University, who will present findings from a review into the effectiveness of infrastructure and its management at reducing the risk of cycling injuries, with a particular focus on speed management issues.
The programme also includes road safety practitioners discussing campaigning for slower speeds and safer communities, and community education and enforcement initiatives.
