    Safety focus on young and older drivers

    Safety focus on young and older drivers

    Preventing road traffic accidents involving both younger and older drivers will be the focus of a major conference later this week.

    Organised by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), the event in Stratford-Upon-Avon on March 2 will also look at motorcycle safety, those who drive as part of their job and rural safety.

    Young drivers account for 1 in 5 accidents

    RoSPA’s road safety head, Kevin Clinton, says with young motorists likelier than more experienced ones to be involved in road accidents, they account for around one in five of the UK’s road deaths.

    And although older people are likelier to be safer drivers, their fitness and health can begin to deteriorate as they age, something that can have an impact on their driving, he adds.

    Mr Clinton says the conference will bring road safety professionals together and give them a chance to look for solutions to those and other long-standing challenges.

    Guest speakers are set to include Derbyshire County Council’s road safety officer, Anna Burgin, and Craig Shawcroft, Derbyshire Fire and Rescue Service’s watch manager.

    Year-long study results

    RoSPA, meanwhile, will reveal the results of a year-long study into young drivers while the charity’s road safety manager will speak on the same subject.

    The conference will also mark the launch of a new free online tool by Driving for Better Business. The Fleet Safety Benchmarking tool will enable employers to compare their at-work road safety performances with those of other firms.

    Public Health England, meanwhile, is due to unveil a new guide aimed at helping schools promote safe travel to its pupils.
