Lucy Marstrand to speak at National Road Safety Conference

For the 11th year running, the National Road Safety Conference is a gathering of representatives from local authorities, police officers, firefighters, central government departments, academics and stakeholders, all for the purpose of discussing the latest and most innovative developments in promoting road safety. A two-day series of workshops, with a wide selection of fringe programmes and speakers serves as the backdrop to this informative networking event. Last year saw a record number of attendees, with this year set to be even more impressive.

It is therefore the perfect opportunity for Lucy Marstrand to present on ‘How to measure road harm?’. As our Healthy Streets Advisor, her specialist knowledge is a clear asset to the conference where she will be discussing the broader harm, beyond injuries and fatalities, posed by car prioritisation in road design. She will then be exploring road safety in terms of risks posed by different demographics.

She will be stating that government and authorities need to shift their focus from the circumstances of the victim to danger posed as this is a far more effective way of assessing road safety. The origins and sources of danger are more important that the individual. The root cause rather than a mere symptom of the problem.

We hope she enjoys her time speaking with the variety of other experts in their fields and that they take onboard her own innovations and experience.
