    Equity in Vision Zero and road safety

    Six Es of traffic safety are commonly used in Vision Zero planning: Engineering, Enforcement, Evaluation, Education, Engagement and Equity. The newest E, Equity, addresses how different barriers and power imbalances can increase road hazards: for instance, lower-income neighbourhoods have poorer built environments and lack of access to transit.

    Join moderator Valerie Smith, Director, Programs at Parachute, in conversation with panelists from York University, The Centre for Active Transportation, and WATT Consulting Group to learn more about applying an equity lens to Vision Zero and road safety planning.

    Horse Council of BC Road Safety Webinar

    Horse council of BC is pleased to offer a free webinar titled “Vehicles have got faster but the horse has stayed the same speed: Equestrian road safety from a UK perspective” on Jan 11, 2023 12:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada).

    The webinar is presented by: Dee Pollard, Research Analyst, The British Horse Society. A brief bio of Dee is as follows:

    Dee is a Veterinary Epidemiologist interested in equine health and welfare topics, particularly the interaction between horses and humans. Dee finished her undergraduate BSc (Hons) degree at Rhodes University in South Africa, followed by a MSc in Animal Breeding and Genetics from Wageningen University (The Netherlands) and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, investigating inherited disorders in horses. In 2013 Dee started a World Horse Welfare-funded laminitis PhD offered by the Royal Veterinary College. This saw her make the move to the Animal Health Trust, where she spent 7 years, taking on a post-doc position after the completion of her PhD. Dee’s PhD and post-doc work looked at the epidemiology of laminitis in Great Britain and what we can do to help reduce the risk. Dee currently works at the British Horse Society as a researcher and completed a Department for Transport-funded project investigating the perceptions and attitudes to road safety by equestrians in the UK. Dee also works as an independent consultant, helping fellow researchers and veterinary surgeons with study design, methodology and statistical analysis.
