The number of road traffic deaths continues to rise steadily, reaching 1.35 million in 2016, as reported by (WHO 2018). To add to this, road traffic injuries are now the leading cause of death for children and young adults aged 5–29 years. The concern about road safety has significantly grown over the past years globally and in Qatar. The National Road Safety Action Plan was developed in 2013 as the first step towards achieving the ambitious vision outlined in the Qatar Road Safety Strategy (2013-2022) for “a safe road transport system that protects all road users from death and serious injury”. One of the action plans is to organize a bi-annual traffic safety conference to bring experts, scholars and practitioners of road safety together. In 2018, the 1st International Traffic Safety Conference (ITSC 2018) was organized in Doha from 26 – 27 November under the patronage of His Excellency, The Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al-Thani. The goal of ITSC is to showcase practical approaches and innovative solutions through multi-track platforms.
