The Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards, which began in 1987, have continued to recognise outstanding achievement and innovation world-wide for over 30 years, giving public recognition to the most outstanding examples of international road safety initiatives each year.

These winners are usually invited to London each December where HRH Prince Michael of Kent has traditionally presented all his road safety awards in person however this was understandably not possible in 2020.

Announcing his awards Prince Michael said,

“Many congratulations to all my winners. I am delighted that their outstanding work has been recognised. My only sadness is that with travel so restricted this year I am not able to meet them and present my award in person. Their achievements are significant, not just because they are innovative, but because they’ve actually saved lives and will continue to do so in the future.

“As we come to the end of the first decade of action for road safety, we’ll shortly begin a second ten year programme which we hope will make a huge difference across the world. The commitment of our winners will certainly help to achieve the ambitious targets being set for this and their programmes will provide encouragement for others.”

A series of webinars highlighting the successes will begin in the New Year to help ensure that the valuable opportunity to share knowledge is not lost.
