As all road safety professionals know, young drivers are at high risk of crashing when they obtain a full licence and begin to drive unsupervised. As an example, an 18-year-old is at six times higher risk of crashing than their parents and at three times higher risk of crashing than a 35-year-old who has just passed their driving test.
Finding ways of reducing crashes and casualties caused by young, newly qualified drivers is a key challenge for the Government, road safety professionals and private sector organisations such as insurance companies.
Now in its fourth year, Young Driver Focus 2017 will examine current and future thinking with regard to this vital issue, and what is being done now and in the future to improve the situation.
Organised by Road Safety GB working in partnership with FirstCar, Young Driver Focus is designed to be of interest to:
• Public sector road safety professionals – road safety officers, fire & rescue, police and others involved in road safety delivery
• Private sector organisations and individuals with an interest in working in partnership with the road safety profession.
Anyone wishing to attend is advised to book as early as possible to be sure of a place at the conference.
The rate for Road Safety GB and Academy members is just £125 and for other attendees £175 (plus VAT), which includes lunch and all other refreshments.
