CARSP Conference – Panel Discussion on Cycling Safety – June 13, Victoria BC
The Canadian Association of Road Safety Professionals (CARSP) has partnered with RoadSafetyBC to host the 2018 CARSP Conference in Victoria, BC. The CARSP conference is primarily aimed at sharing knowledge among Canada’s road safety professionals with the goal of making our roads safer. Conference delegates represent a broad array of disciplines including: health professionals, engineers, Government officials, crash re-constructionists, insurers, researchers, enforcement, and more.
Our own Melissa Bruntlett joins an all-women panel who will discuss the Evolutions of Transportation Cycling in North America and around the world. As an expert on representing the normalization of every day cycling, Melissa will discuss how the role of bicycles has changed since the first bicycles hit the roads in the early 20th century, what caused their decline in the past 50 years, and how advocates and organizations are inspiring a transportation cycling revolution. Following a ten-minute presentation by each panelist, they will answer questions from delegates focused on what members of CARSP, transportation engineers and city leaders can do to promote safe, comfortable places to cycle in their own cities.
