FERSI, the Forum of European Road Safety Research Organisations, is organising a two-day conference for researchers and policy makers on 28 and 29 October 2021 in the Hague. The conference will allow for discussion of promising ways to facilitate the decision making and implementation process of proven (cost-)effective but politically sensitive road safety measures. 

Whether or not the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect our mobility, road traffic crashes will remain an issue in most European countries. Road crashes result in high material and immaterial costs both for the victims and their loved ones, and for society. Nevertheless, there are many proven, very effective measures for improving road safety which are ready to be implemented in a cost-effective way. Still, they are not yet implemented, with political barriers or a lack of societal urgency between the main reasons.    

Scope and aim

The conference focuses on the exchange of national and regional experiences with implementing evidence-based road safety measures, both positive and negative ones. There will be a specific focus on the road to successful implementation, including overcoming the barriers encountered along the way. The overall aim is to learn from each other, providing a source of inspiration and motivation to (re)start the discussion about specific measures in our own setting.
