Vulnerable Road Users, which include pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists and non-motorized transport, account for more than 30% of road fatalities worldwide.
The International Road Federation (IRF) and the Qatar Transportation and Traffic Safety Center (QTTSC) are running a training program on Vulnerable Road User Safety at Qatar University from 24-26 September 2017 in Doha, Qatar.
The training looks at the reasons pedestrians, bicyclists, motorcyclists, public transportation vehicles and non-motorized vehicles are involved in impacts that result in fatalities and serious injuries. The corrective actions, including education, enforcement and engineering actions that can be taken to reduce these impacts are then presented and discussed in detail. Everyone in every country is a Vulnerable Road User at some point. The training will equip delegates to find out what is possible, and put it into action.
This training is applicable for Road Agency Executives, Highway and Street Engineers, Traffic Management Professionals, Traffic Safety Professionals, Pedestrian Safety Advocates, Bicycle Safety Advocates, Motorcycle Safety Advocates, Law Enforcement, Product Distributors and Research & Academia Personnel.
