Road safety forum set up by charity
05 May 2011
A road safety charity study has shown that 30% of dangerous drivers who have been convicted are under 21 and 95% of these are male.
Brake has organised a conference on the issue of young male drivers involved in road crashes, which can lead to injuries, death and heartbreak.
The forum, called Youth, Gender and Road Risk, is aimed at finding effective interventions to lower the number of young male motorists involved in accidents. The demographic, already paying the highest car insurance premiums, would benefit in several ways from a successful event.
The 9th Road Safety Forum International Congress will be held at the Royal College of Surgeons, London, on June 9. More than 100 road safety professionals from around the world are expected at the event.
According to Brake's research, somewhere in the world someone dies in a road accident every 30 seconds.
High-profile road safety campaigners, including Dr Carol Holland (Senior Lecturer in Psychology, Aston University) and Dr Fiona Fylan (Chartered health psychologist, Brainbox Research) will address the forum.
