‘Four Seasons in One Seminar’ – the Contribution of Adverse Weather in Road Crashes

by Australian Road Research Board on October 16, 2020

four seasons in one seminar - Web Image v2

Wednesday 18 November 2020, 11AM AEDT

Join us for this ARRB virtual seminar!

As we brace ourselves for the prospect of searing heat and intense rainfall events in the coming months or reflect more generally on adverse weather around Australia throughout the year, this webinar will consider the contribution that various kinds of adverse weather make to road crashes either as causation or contributory factor. Wind and extreme heat events and the various forms of precipitation (rain/hail, ice, frost, snow) all have the potential to increase the risk faced by the traveling public, and their influence will be discussed. A selection of risk mitigation measures will also be introduced. Insights into the effects of adverse weather in other parts of the globe will also be touched upon to provide a comprehensive coverage.
