There are quite a few proven effective measures that are hardly implemented because of real or presumed barriers. On Thursday 14 October FERSI organised a successful online symposium on exactly this topic. The audience were treated to three presentations on relevant topics: an urban 30km/h limit in Spain, a strict, but evidence-based successful road safety management in Greece and the promotion of (voluntary) bicycle helmet use in Denmark. A lively discussion followed with input from the EC, the WHO and the scientific world.

On our way to the 2022 FERSI conference
The online symposium was a prelude to the postponed FERSI Conference in the Hague on 6 & 7 October 2022 around the same theme: Implementing evidence-based road safety measures, removing barriers and enhancing public support. This symposium clearly showed that there is still a lot to learn from all the different experiences in other countries. So, for the FERSI Conference in 2022, we expect many interesting contributions on a variety of road safety topics.
