International Conference on Safety and Mobility of Vulnerable Road Users: Pedestrians, Motorcyclists and Bicyclists
- 30 May-2 June 2010, Jerusalem, Israel
- Website: http://vulnerableroadusers.d-u.co.il
- Organiser: Israel National Road Safety Authority, in cooperation with FERSI and TRB
The changing trends in personal transportation, environmental concerns, quality of life, and safety are all converging on a world-wide increase in walking, cycling, and motorcycling as means of transportation. The increasing exposure of motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians (VRU = Vulnerable Road Users) to road traffic raises the concern for the safety of the VRU. The sifnificant improvements in the safety of car occupants that have been achieved in most countries over the past decades have not been paralleled in the safety of the VRUs. Injury rates of VRU's have actually increased in many countries. Thus, combining mobility and safety of VRU is a critical emerging issue in both developed and developing countries.
The goal of the conference is to bring together the latest scientific information, best practices, and policies form different countries.
