AUSTRALIAN ROAD SAFETY AWARDS RECOGNISE COUNTRY'S BEST
The Australian Road Safety Awards, presented by Caltex, are an initiative of the Australian Road Safety Foundation.
The awards are designed to acknowledge the achievements of leading road safety stakeholders and provide an opportunity to formally recognize their commitment to improving road safety outcomes.
Australian Road Safety Foundation CEO Russell White said that the calibre of finalists recognised at this year's Awards was raising a new standard of excellence in the road safety field.
“We started the awards in 2010, not only to recognise achievements but to also provide a powerful motivational tool for corporate organisations, community groups and individuals to work towards safer roads in their locals areas," Mr White said.
“Reducing the number of lives lost on roads will only happen with the concerted and combined effort of community, government and activists so I applaud not just today's winners, but the 54 finalists programs recognised today," he said.
“Once again, the awards have highlighted new and innovative initiatives that have been introduced across this country and I would like to personally thank those who promote this important message of road safety," he said.
Queensland Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson:
“Initiatives like the Australia Road Safety Awards remind us how crucial it is to recognise the contributions made towards safer roads."
