Our friends at Team Alert in the Netherlands have become the first youth-led NGO for road safety to be awarded the prestigious Prince Michael International Road Safety Award. We congratulate them in their groundbreaking award and celebrate their success as a beacon for road safety NGOs around the world.
Since 1987 our Awards have given public recognition to those who have improved road safety throughout Britain. Now the Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards recognise outstanding achievement and innovation world-wide. The Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards recognise achievements and innovations which will improve road safety.
All road users, including pedestrians, drivers, cyclists, bikers and horse riders are asked to identify those whose initiatives make our roads safer and nominate them for an award. The winners of all the awards will be invited to meet HRH Prince Michael of Kent at a Gala Presentation held annually in December.
