International Conference on Urban Traffic Safety
Message from the Conference Chairs
On behalf of the organizing committee, it is our pleasure to invite you to join us at the 10th Annual International Conference on Urban Traffic Safety from July 9th to the 12th, 2018 at the Shaw Conference Centre in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
This year we have carefully crafted a conference program which will bring speakers from all around the world to showcase some of the leading research they are undertaking in the following three themes: Enforcement, Education, and Engineering.
Just as all road users feel the impact of traffic safety, the responsibility to promote traffic safety is shared by many disciplines. This multidisciplinary approach is more evident now than it ever was before. When jurisdictions and agencies refer to Vision Zero Action Plans and Road Safety Strategies, their underlying theme revolves around collaborating with all partners whether they are engineers, enforcement officers, medical professionals, planners, political leaders, or public health representatives. For this reason, we will ensure that at this year’s conference, we will have a wide variety of topics and speakers to appeal to you.
As we continue to build our conference program, we encourage you to check back often! We have an ever-growing list of new topics and presenters! They will be speaking to how different elements of Vision Zero can come together to help reach the goal of zero fatalities and major injuries.
No matter where you or your organization are on this journey to bring Traffic Safety and Vision Zero to the forefront, attending this conference will inspire and equip you with new ideas and action plans to make your community safer. We look forward to seeing you in July!
Until then, be safe!
Shewkar Ibrahim and Ran Li
