|ESRA2 International Conference on Measuring Traffic Safety Culture is POSTPONED
Given recent developments in relation to the coronavirus, 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 conference speakers, there is 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.
|May 20-21 – POSTPONED
||5th Annual Canadian Coalition on Distracted Driving Meeting
|The 5th annual Canadian Coalition on Distracted Driving (CCDD) meeting is POSTPONED.
Further to our ongoing assessments of the COVID-19 situation since it emerged and in speaking with partners and the hotel, it likely won’t come as a surprise that we have made the decision to postpone the CCDD 2020 5th annual meeting scheduled for May 20th & 21st in Nanaimo, BC.
We will look at rescheduling for sometime in the 2nd half of the year depending on how the situation evolves.
While the meeting is postponed, work on this important initiative continues.

Equitability: Road Safety for all through Vision Zero and Sustainable Safety
|COVID-19 Update – CARSP/PRI 2020 Joint Road Safety Conference is POSTPONED
The organizing committee has come to the difficult, but necessary, decision to postpone the conference to 2021 (likely June). Given recent developments in Canada and the rest of the world, we agreed this is the best solution to prioritize the safety of all people involved and to make sure the event is a success. The conference partners want to assure you, however, that we are committed to making this event happen next year and details will soon follow.
If you have made hotel arrangements, we are pleased to report both the Hôtel Monville and the Holiday Inn Centreville have agreed to provide a full refund for the first night’s deposit (taken at booking).
On behalf of the organizing committee, we hope you are staying safe and healthy and look forward to seeing you all in 2021.

|March 4-6||Drop It And Drive® youth presentation tour
Burnaby and Surrey, BC
|The DIAD team is delivering four presentations at three schools in Burnaby and Surrey, BC to students from grades 8 to 12. Our focus for school seminars is to provide students with the science of ‘how and why’ distracted driving, and distracted walking, is risky behaviour. Positive messaging and even the use of humour, as well as sharing personal stories and practical examples of real-world risks, help engage students in a conversation about the potential consequences of a moment’s distraction. At the end of each seminar, we want students to feel empowered, through increased knowledge and understanding, to be road safety ambassadors within their families, school and community.|
