The Road Safety Foundation Receives Premier Award

The commitment, innovation and clear achievement in reducing deaths and serious injuries on the UK's road network by the Road Safety Foundation received the overall Premier Award from HRH Prince Michael at the Savoy Hotel in London.

In his citation, Prince Michael said: "As well as demonstrating consistency in its style of measurement and reporting, the Foundation is always seeing new uses for the data it collects, such as the first map of deaths and serious injuries by parliamentary constituency, so that every MP is aware of the risks in their area.

"Detailed regional analysis allows local authorities to understand the performance of their own roads against others', and the sheer scale of the study generates a national picture of the weaknesses of certain road types, for example tourist routes that attract motorcyclists."

The Foundation was one of a number of organisations that received awards last month for outstanding examples of road safety innovation across the world, but was honoured with the overall Premier Award.

Dr Joanne Hill, director of the Road Safety Foundation, collected the award on behalf of the team, and said that the award was welcome recognition of the dedication of those working for and with the RSF to improve road safety.
