30th Anniversary Celebration

Recently Prince Michael held a reception in London to thank those who have supported his awards scheme over its 30 years. His guests included award winners and members of the Awards judging panel.

Recognising this special milestone in the Awards' history, the Prince said in his address:

''It is thirty years since I established my Road Safety Awards to recognise advances in road traffic injury prevention. The awards began in the United Kingdom, which at the time experienced more than five thousand road traffic fatalities every year. Today, thanks to the road safety lobby, we lose fewer that two thousand people.

Over this period as you know we have seen steady progress especially in Europe, Australasia and America but the enormity of the challenge facing us facing us especially in the developing world still remains.

My awards recognise these efforts, and encourage momentum for further success.

I been proud to add my strong personal support to the global call for action. Now we must redouble these efforts: to meet our ambitious international targets and to realise the ‘Vision Zero’ of a road transport system that no longer kills or seriously injures its users.”
