    The Ethics of Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAVs)

    In 2020, the European Commission published recommendations from an expert group (of which I was a member) on the ethics of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs). One of the recommendations considered whether and how CAVs should be allowed to break the rules of the roads in the interests of safety. Further work explored expectations around the behaviour of CAVs in relation to rule compliance and how to resolve the challenge of enabling CAVs to show discretion in the way human drivers (sometimes) do. My presentation describes this work setting up discussion on how regulators should engage with CAV developers to optimise CAV behaviour.

    The Global Plan for the New Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030: What You Need to Know

    The Decade of Action for Road Safety 2021-2030 has been proclaimed by a UN General Assembly Resolution with a target to reduce road traffic deaths and injuries by 50 per cent by 2030, recognizing the gravity of this global issue.

    The Decade of Action is underpinned by the Global Plan, launched Oct. 28, 2021, which aims to inspire and guide national and local government, as well other stakeholders who can influence road safety. Those include civil society, academia, the private sector, donors, community and youth leaders, and other stakeholders as they develop supporting national and local action plans and targets. Through advocating for the Safe System Approach and providing recommendations based on best practices and research, the plan is an important resource both within Canada and abroad.

    The webinar will provide an overview of the Global Plan, including three parts of road safety action: what to do, how to do it and who does it. Panelists will also discuss how road safety needs to be integrated into other policy agendas such as climate action and equity, to increase its reach and influence. The webinar will also refer to Canada’s Road Safety Strategy 2025.
