Making life better through improved road safety and mobility for people on the move
Road safety continues to remain a top priority across the Middle East. At their advent, various road safety campaigns across the region yielded quick gains by correcting issues relating to road design, promoting a culture of safety and rolling out various road safety initiatives. However, as we have made dramatic improvements over a relatively short space of time, we are steadily reaching a pinnacle where affecting a small change requires much more work, thought and consideration.
Further, the subject of ITS is gaining greater traction across the Middle East as major cities begin deployment of ITS strategies. There is a common theme throughout the region to improve mobility, reduce traffic and increase safety through the development of ITS infrastructure.
In keeping with the market trends, the 4th annual ITS & Road Safety Forum will deliver high level discussions and insight into the most pressing issues affecting road safety and ITS deployment in the GCC.
