The 2017 RoSPA Road Safety Conference returns on March 9.
In 2017 RoSPA will be celebrating its 100th anniversary. Since the charity’s inception the roads and vehicles have changed dramatically, whilst sadly tackling road user error is just as important today as it was in 1896 when Bridget Driscoll became Britain’s first road vehicle fatality. This year’s conference looks at how technology is changing the face of road safety and considers whether there is still a role for evaluated innovative ETP (education, training and publicity) interventions.
To be among the first to receive further information, please register your interest now and we will send more information to you as soon as it's ready.
