ESRA conference postponed
Given the recent developments in relation to the corona virus, in particular the meeting restrictions imposed by French authorities, an ever increasing number of travel restrictions by national authorities across the world and the cancellation of several of our conference speakers, we see no other option than to cancel the ESRA conference of 1-3 April in Paris.
The conference will be postponed to a date still to be determined, but probably in the Autumn of 2020 or the Spring of 2021.
ESRA (E-Survey of Road Users’ Attitudes) is a joint international initiative of research centres and road safety institutes across the world. In its first stage (ESRA1) the project has surveyed road users in 38 countries on 5 continents. In its current stage (ESRA2), 48 countries took part. New countries are welcome to join! Contact us if you are interested!
The purpose of this network is to collect comparable data on the road safety situation and culture indicated by the road users’ past and habitual behaviours, attitudes, beliefs, perceived norms and values. The data collected and analysed lead to a large set of road safety indicators and provide scientific evidence for policy making at national and international level.
Vias institute in Brussels (Belgium) initiated and coordinates the ESRA initiative, in cooperation with a core group of partner organisations from 11 countries.
The first edition of the ESRA survey (ESRA1) was launched in three waves during the period 2015-2017. The second edition (ESRA2), which is based on an improved survey questionnaire, was launched in two waves in 2018 and 2019.
Results of the ESRA2 survey, which covers 48 countries, are published here. More reports will be published in 2020 and 2021.
