2009 Australasian road safety research, policing and education conference : 2009 intelligent speed adaption conference (2009 : Sydney, Australia) : program & abstracts

This program contains abstracts of papers covering road safety drivers, passengers and pedestrians, improving vehicle safety and the challenges of moving technology to improve road safety outcomes from research to implementation. This year's conference proved to be a successful event, bringing together over 500 road safety practitioners to share their expertise and insights, with the common goal of improving road safety. Delegates from across Australia were joined by international counterparts from Indonesia, India, New Zealand, China, Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates and Canada. In conjunction with the national conference, the New South Wales (NSW) Centre for Road Safety also hosted the first international conference on intelligent speed adaptation. The conference represented an international perspective on intelligent speed adaptation, with leading road safety practitioners and industry professionals from Australia and around the world discussing the latest results from International Standards Association (ISA) Trials and the issues revolving around the implementation of ISA and its associated systems. Despite the record reduction in fatal road crashes both in NSW and other states and territories in 2008 (and over many previous years), many challenges still lie ahead in achieving a common goal of reducing road deaths and injuries. Improvements can still be made by investigating emerging road safety technology, designing and maintaining safer roads and implementing best practice policy to address road user behaviour. The NSW Centre for Road Safety, along with other road safety partners in NSW, were pleased to have hosted a memorable event that deepened the industry's knowledge and understanding as well as nurtured professional contacts and opportunities in the road safety field
