We invite you to join us for a dialogue on Sustainable Transport and Traffic Safety from 12:30pm to 3:15pm on December 5, 2013.

This event will explore the link between traffic safety and sustainable transport and will include a presentation on a newly released EMBARQ publication - "Saving Lives with Sustainable Transport" - examining evidence of the safety impact of sustainable transport projects and policies including Bus Rapid Transit, biking and pedestrian infrastructure.
