An Urbanicity Alert: 10th International Conference on Urban Traffic Safety

2018 International Conference on Urban Traffic Safety
July 9 – 12, 2018
Shaw Conference Centre
Edmonton, Alberta

“Vision Zero – Zero Fatalities and Serious Injuries”

All road users feel the impact of traffic safety, for this reason, the responsibility to promote traffic safety is shared by many disciplines. This multidisciplinary approach is more evident now than it ever was before. When jurisdictions and agencies refer to Vision Zero Action Plans and Road Safety Strategies, their underlying theme revolves around collaborating with all partners whether they are engineers, enforcement officers, medical professionals, planners, political leaders, or public health representatives.

This year’s program will feature a diverse group of speakers from around the world with the expertise and knowledge in the leading research they are taking in the following three themes: Enforcement, Education, and Engineering.
Get inspired and equip yourself with new ideas to make your community safer!
