"A Northumberland woman’s 10-year campaign for lorry safety improvements has had a major breakthrough. The European Parliament has approved a change in the law for lorry design so that the driver would have much better visibility of the road, cyclists and pedestrians."
"Kate Cairns (FICE, Telegraph Top 50 Women in Engineering) lost her sister to a lorry collision in 2009, since then she’s been one of Britain’s leading advocates for cycling and road safety. This talk will describe her story, her work to improve road safety and the challenges of implementing policy change at both the local and national level."
