Workshop for information-gathering on road safety
June 2, 2015 @ 10:00 pm - June 3, 2015 @ 9:59 pm
The Commission’s “Policy orientations on road safety 2011-2020” outlines priorities for the European Commission road safety work during this decade. Among the objectives is the increased understanding of crashes and risks. In follow-up to these Policy orientations, the Commission has contracted a study to collect more detailed information about the specific risks linked to distracted and inattentive road users.
A workshop will be organised on 3 June 2015, in order to discuss the preliminary study findings with a group of selected experts and to gather additional inputs and comments for the study.
At the workshop, the study consortium will present their preliminary findings regarding main risks and possible countermeasures to road user distractions. The workshop participants will be invited to comment on these conclusions and to discuss additional aspects to be taken into consideration. The workshop participants will be asked to share their specific experiences and knowledge regarding potential benefits of the proposed countermeasures and potential barriers to their deployment and implementation.
As part of the workshop attendees will participate in an interactive game where they will provide input for deployment scenarios of selected interventions. The game focuses on stakeholder roles and organizational aspects. The game setting provides an efficient and enjoyable way for participants to express their expectations towards other stakeholders, and to share their insights and stakeholder interests with each other and with the project team. The expectations will then be presented and discussed.
