From Vision to Implementation

Background

Sweden will host the 3rd Ministerial Road Safety Conference on February 19-20, 2020 marking the end of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety, and kick-starting the 2030 goals. Over a thousand road safety stakeholders including Ministers, NGOs and heads of agencies are expected to join and contribute to the event. 

The International Road Federation (IRF) in partnership with the Swedish Transport Administration, Road Safety Support and Sensys Gatso Group have been designated to host an official pre-conference workshop on "Global Best Practices in Enforcement: Speeding & Distracted Driving" which will take place on February 18 from 14:00 to 18:00 at the Grand Hotel in Stockholm, a short distance from the conference venue. 

Objectives

Measures to cut excessive speed and distracted driving are recognized as one of the most effective pathways to achieving immediate and lasting reductions in reductions in Road Traffic Injuries (RTIs). As part of "Global Voluntary Performance Targets for Road Safety" established in 2017, countries committed to "halving the proportion of vehicles travelling over the posted speed limit and achieving a reduction in speed-related injuries and fatalities".

Building on these goals, the workshop is designed to strengthen the ability of road safety professionals in fast-motorizing countries to design effective speed & distracted driver enforcement programs.

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the value of speed & distracted driver enforcement as a key pillar of road safety strategies
  • Assess the role of data in driving successful enforcement programs
  • Review the benefits and pre-requisites for Automated Speed Enforcement (ASE)
  • Understand the importance of supporting measures to improve ASE acceptability
  • Review existing technologies and successful case studies
