RACV, AITPM and ACRS have come together to offer a road safety seminar series. There are six sessions aiming to tackle the question of which steps need to be taken to move closer towards zero.
We will hear from strategists and practitioners about their experiences and they will offer solutions the industry needs to implement in order to create a safer system to eliminate trauma from the road network.
Please join us for the second session of this series to hear from Rob McInerney, CEO at iRAP and Dr Blair Turner, World Bank
