The Australasian Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference is the most important annual road safety event in Australia. In 2010 the conference will be held at the National Convention Centre, Canberra from 31 August to 3 September 2010.

The Safe System approach has been endorsed by the Australian Transport Council (ATC) as the basis for Australia’s road safety improvement efforts. The 2010 conference theme, Safe System – from knowledge to action, highlights the importance of both the understanding and application of Safe System concepts that will underpin the next National Road Safety Strategy. As we head into a new decade, the challenge for researchers, policy makers and practitioners will be to harness the potential of the Safe System paradigm to drive road safety improvements. The conference will provide an important opportunity to share your expertise, experience and aspirations.

The conference will:

Present current research and best practice in road safety, particularly in those areas identified as national road safety priorities.
Provide a venue for discussion of advances in road safety research and practice including in education, enforcement, engineering and the road environment.
Showcase innovation, progress and new directions in road safety policy, planning, research, practice and evaluation.
Bring together road safety stakeholders to facilitate collaboration and information sharing
