Overview
The Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals (CARSP) invites you to join us for a hybrid conference with sessions in-person, streamed, and/or recorded.  The conference theme, “Collaborating on the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety” was chosen to emphasize the importance of a holistic approach to road safety and calls on the continued implementation of the Safe Systems Approach, leveraging co-benefits of other Sustainable Development Goals, and ensuring shared responsibility among all actors to achieve road safety objectives.  The conference plenary sessions will focus on the theme and other priority road safety issues such as Speed Management, Rural Road Safety, Vulnerable Road Users (including Active Transportation), and Traffic Safety Culture.  The abstract presentation sessions will explore a multitude of road safety topics.   The conference is aimed at road safety practitioners from many disciplines, including, but not limited to:  health professionals, engineers, government officials, crash re-constructionists, insurers, researchers, and enforcement personnel.  While their approaches vary, these professionals all share the same goal: to make our roads safer.  Conference registration and Preliminary Program now posted!  Don’t miss a conference update by subscribing to our mailing list!
