Traffic | Safety | Roads – An Interactive Event (Current and Topical Issues affecting the Road and Traffic Safety Agenda)BOOK NOW
08/06/2020 18:30:00 - 08/06/2020 20:00:00

When: 08 June 2020 18:00 (for 18:30) - 20:00
Where: Reading Town Hall, Blagrave St, Reading, West Berkshire RG1 1QH
Meeting Point: Soane Space

Speaker: Road Safety Consultant – The Graham Feest Consultancy incorporating the UK Road Safety Network

This is an interactive session incorporating presentation, debate/ discussion and opinion on a range of topical issues which are currently influencing the road and traffic safety agenda. A brief introduction will look at the current road casualty figures and this will be followed by a randomly selected number of topics hidden behind a grid upon which the remainder of the spontaneity delivered evening will proceed. The breadth of the discussion will be in the hands of the people participating and will provide no doubt for some strong opinion and lively discussion. The grid which contains some thirty subject areas will never be fully exhausted as experience has shown that rarely to reveal more than three or four in the course of the session depending of course on how the debate proceeds.

Whilst the topics are unknown it could be that you become forced take issue with the presenter as he  may dismiss the lowering of the drink drive limit;  stun the real value of introducing a graduated licensing system; considers that LGV’s on the motorway should only be permitted in the inside lane; people who speed should be disqualified on first offence for at least six months and drivers or their passengers who fail to wear seat belts should be given a minimum fine of £1,000 with a licence endorsement of at least 6 points. Well you need to come and see if these are the values of the speaker and if the topic arises then you might just be able to put your point of view across.

Whatever the topic there will be an opportunity for knowledge gain from both presenter and participants.
