Professor Adrian Davis is a presenter on Thursday 25th June for a webinar addressing road danger and specifically speed. With efforts to reallocate road space for social distancing and to reduce congestion and the risk of gridlock in urban areas as Covid-19 related restrictions ease many local authorities are also considering implementing 20mph limits to enable citizens to choose to use streets, roads and public space safely as pedestrians and cyclists. Adrian will draw on decades of experience on speed control and specific expertise in the design of 20mph speed limit programmes including currently in supporting the Welsh Government’s planned national default 20mph in place of most current 30mph speed limits.
