The future for road safety

21 September 2004

Hosted by Transport for London, the conference will address key issues affecting road safety policy like the influence of the new Traffic Management Act and the impact of speed humps.

This year's conference will update the industry on the latest thinking and good practice within Road Safety and give the chance to question and debate the latest policies and how they will affect the push to drive down the numbers of those hurt on our roads.
