This webinar will be given by Stuart Lovatt on Wednesday 25th October 2023 at 1 pm [13:00] British Summertime.
Stuart retired last year after 34 years in the Civil Service working initially in HM Customs and Excise finishing in the Law Enforcement Directorate before moving to Highways Agency in Nov 2022 on promotion. Stuart’s previous role as Strategic Road Safety Lead at National Highways saw him bring with him extensive experience in road safety strategy and delivery at the highest level. He represented National Highways and supported the Department of Transport at a range of national strategic road safety Boards and Committees, including the National Road User Safety Committee for the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the Parliamentary Council for Transport Safety Behavioural Advisory Group (PACTS). Stuart is a long-standing judge for HRH Prince Michael of Kent’s International Road Safety Awards, a role he has fulfilled for over 20 years.
In September 2022 Stuart was appointed as Chair of TyreSafe the leading road safety charity dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of correct tyre maintenance to reduce the risk of death and injury on UK’s roads. His appointment supports TyreSafe’s ambition to strengthen its presence in the road safety community and supporting the safe system approach.
In this webinar Stuart will set out how TyreSafe supports a safe and sustainable approach to road safety interventions across Great Britain, how it is working with road safety practitioners to understand the scale of the problem around illegal and defective tyres on British roads and will present their latest research around the state of tyres on British roads and how it is now developing effective partnerships to tackle this growing safety issue.
