- Henk Stipdonk from the SWOV Institute for Road Safety Research, Netherlands, who will present research demonstrating the link between vehicles involved in speeding offences and vehicles involved in crashes.
- Professor John Parkin from London South Bank University, who will present findings from a review into the effectiveness of infrastructure and its management at reducing the risk of cycling injuries, with a particular focus on speed management issues.
The programme also includes road safety practitioners discussing campaigning for slower speeds and safer communities, and community education and enforcement initiatives.
