The Hamilton Centre
Uxbridge UB8 3PH
This was a well attended event that enabled connections to be made between the research and practitioner communities - a key part of PACTS' role. PACTS is grateful to Brunel Law School for the opportunity to undertake the day. It was also somewhat ironic that, on the day following the conference, the government issued a conultation document on fixed penalty notices for careless driving with a great fanfare about how this would lead to greater enforcement on our roads.
Two key themes emerged during the day: the role of education in achieving compliance or in creating an environment in which greater enforcement might be acceptable and the factors that lead to greater deterrence - certainty, severity and celerity.
Copies of some of the presentations are attached.
