An opportunity to help us evaluate Project EDWARD 2017

May I take this opportunity to invite you to share your thoughts about Project EDWARD 2017. We want to ensure that Project EDWARD is replicable and sustainable, so you can be assured that we will take your comments and suggestions very seriously as we develop Project EDWARD for 2018 and beyond. Please bear in mind that this is not a quick poll where you give a selection of scores between 1 and 10. No numbers are involved. Instead, we do ask that you share your thoughts on 15 different aspects of exhaust we did this year and what we might be able to do in future. You do not have to answer all 15, by the way! I do appreciate your time and effort in providing your thoughts, and I look forward to reading your responses. This survey is open until Tuesday 21 November 2017, and we will plan to publish a detailed evaluation in the early part of 2018. Ruth Purdie (TISPOL General Secretary)

ETSC – The European Union’s Role in Promoting the Safety of Cycling 2016

The European Transport Safety Council (ETSC) has published a Position Paper titled The European Union’s Role in Promoting the Safety of Cycling, containing proposals for a safety component in a future EU Cycling Strategy, authored by Ellen Townsend. 

This paper builds on recent calls for the European Commission to come forward with a cycling strategy for the European Union and ETSC supports the need for co-ordinated European action on cycling and welcomes a pan-European strategy. This Position Paper is designed to serve as inspiration for the safety component of such a strategy and will look at initiatives within these different areas of action of relevance to cyclist safety.

Quarterly Research Report: Jan-Mar17

Enabling mobility whilst minimising harm is the future of transport towards which we are working intently

Here at TRL, safety continues to underpin every aspect of the work that we do. A core part of our mission, we are striving for sustained reductions (ultimately to zero) in fatalities and serious injuries on the transport network. With a specific focus on Road Safety, this Quarterly Research Report highlights the continued importance of this work in light of shifts in mobility trends, changing vehicle ownership and the impact of technology.
