GB Road Safety Performance Index Launch (Agilysis Webinar)

GB Road Safety Performance Index Launch

Thursday 18th November 2021 at 14:00-15:00

This session marks the launch the GB Road Safety Performance Index, a new report and accompanying data tool from The Towards Zero Foundation. Examining road safety performance over 3 decades the report highlights the cost of inaction over the last decade and how it has resulted in excess deaths and injuries. Whilst this context is important the report and this webinar will go on to explore how we restore momentum in local road safety and embrace the same ambition that is being expressed globally to achieve the ambitious target of a 50% reduction by 2030.

The whole project has been sponsored by TZF and is dedicated to the memory of Alex Ward, a passionate local politician and supporter of road safety, who sadly lost his battle with MND.
