We’re honoured to have renowned speakers from a diverse range of fields and countries to give us insight into a wider range of road safety and mobility issues.” said Mr Bernard Tay, President of AA Singapore. The conference speakers on day one will be sharing their expertise on latest technology, covering topics on autonomous driving, car design and safety technologies, safer mobility innovation efforts, how it improves travel experience and global pedestrian safety. Day two speakers will also share on overseas safe driving, safe cycling in cities, drivers’ behaviour and child passenger safety training. “Through the one and a half day conference, we hope everyone can understand the topics better and play our part to make the roads safer for ourselves, our loved ones and especially for the vulnerable road users, such as the young and the old. Road accidents can be prevented if road users adopt the correct behaviour and safety habits. We hope to partner more of such like-minded individuals and companies to achieve safer roads in Singapore and in global context.” said Mr Bernard Tay.
