SoRSA Conference

Author: Andreas Markides Posted: 27 June 2017

I was fortunate enough to be invited to the SoRSA (Society of Road Safety Officers) Annual Conference in Birmingham last month. This was a 2-day event which brought together nearly 200 professionals from across the country who are employed in safety work. I was struck by the delegates’ professionalism and passion for what they do. SoRSA is a fundamental part of CIHT and we are grateful as well as proud of their contribution to our activities and to the profession in general.

Did you know…

 
 
Billions of pounds spent upgrading motorways and roads may be a waste of money because traffic levels are expected to fall, ministers have been told. 
 
A study by the University of Leeds has said that people were travelling “less often and less far” by car because of the rise of internet shopping, Netflix and flexible working.
 
The Commission on Travel Demand said that individuals used cars and other vehicles 14% less than they did fifteen years ago with more of those in their late teens and early 20s shunning car ownership altogether.
 
Hence, even though traffic has reached record levels as a result of population growth, the study has concluded that vehicles were likely to travel 70 billion miles less by 2040 than the government predicted.
