The 2018 National Road Safety Conference, the 10th edition of the annual event, took place at The Grand in Brighton on 27-28 November. Around 330 road safety professionals attended the event across the two days.

The 2018 National Conference featured 68 speakers and facilitators delivering 51 presentations and workshops.

The conference opened with video presentations by the road safety minister Jesse Norman, and Liz Brooker MBE, incoming chair of Road Safety GB – and a review of the road safety highs and lows of 2018 by David Davies, executive director of PACTS.

Representatives from national road safety stakeholders – including the DfT’s THINK! team, NPCC, the Association of Police & Crime Commissioners and Road Safety GB – covered the latest thinking with regard to ‘enforcement’, ‘education’, ‘engineering’ (roads and vehicles) and ‘evidence’.

Other topics on the agenda included a focus on cycling, a debate about the merits of ‘Safe Drive, Stay Alive’ style interventions – and a series of quick fire presentations by practitioners in a session titled ‘speed dating’.

The Question Time session line up comprised: professor Frank McKenna, University of Reading; Simon Rewell, Insure the Box; Steve Horton, Road Safety GB, Rachel White, Sustrans; and Katy Bourne, police and crime commissioner for Sussex.

The Fringe once again ran alongside the main conference and comprised three sessions.

All of the main conference sessions were filmed and can be viewed on the conference website. The conference presentations can be downloaded from the same link (below).
