The processes surrounding road safety audit can often be confused, misinterpreted and misunderstood by Overseeing Organisations (Roads Authorities) and designers.
This talk by Eric Hill, the Society or Road Safety Auditors committee representative for Scotland, will cover who should do what, the processes involved and how a designer should respond and what the Overseeing Organisation should expect.
The event is aimed at all who are involved in the road safety process and in particular Designers and Roads Authority staff who are responsible for the commissioning and responding to road safety audits.
