Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free of charge
Ticketing: Open

Effective and sustainable policy-making is achieved through a combination of political will, policy support and professional commitment. It also reflects and responds to public concerns and attitudes.

Great Britain can point to three areas of road safety policy where such debate has occurred – seat belt wearing, drink-driving and speed policy. Each of these has been more (or less) effective. Why is that the case and what lessons can we draw from these different aspects of policy making?

In this seminar, Robert Gifford will attempt to outline the approaches taken to each of these policy areas and the successes and failures. He will also try to draw conclusions about how to take road safety policy forward in more challenging times.

Reception 6.00- 6.30pm in G04 Chadwick Building followed by talk in Lecture theatre Chadwick B05 6.30pm until 7.30pm with drinks reception until 8.30pm.
