Lots of interesting subjects throughout the day, from Twenty's Plenty to developments in child passenger safety, managing road risk and driving distractions. Wearing virtual reality goggles really draws you into the moment to highlight the potential consequences of driver distractions. It was rather a strange phenomenon sitting in the front passenger seat looking down at my 'injuries' and being tended to by a paramedic, the weirdest of all was watching the vehicle roof being cut away... Really good event by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA)
