On Tuesday March 22, 2016, the fourteenth edition of the Flemish Road Safety Conference will take place in Antwerp (Belgium). This year, the conference focuses on the growing complexity of our society. Children, seniors, ‘new Flemish people’ and other road users move in an environment marked by an increasing urbanization.

The conference examines whether the old, general road safety measures still guarantee our road safety. Or should they focus again on men and society? Again, several IMOB-researchers are contributing to this conference:

  • Kris Brijs (Assistant Professor, IMOB) – The category B driving education in Flanders: the effectivity of the existing model and policy recommendations concerning the future
  • Wouter van Haperen (PhD student, IMOB) – The diverging diamond interchange
  • Heike Martensen (BIVV) and Judith Urlings (PhD student, IMOB) – Seniors and road safety
  • Ariane Cuenen (PhD student, IMOB) and Sofie Boets (BIVV) – The use of a checklist to determine the driving ability of seniors

All lecturers will be given in Dutch. If you’re interested in the full programme of the conference, please click the link below:
