Australasian College of Road Safety wins Royal Award

14 December 2017

The Australasian College of Road Safety has been recognised with a prestigious 2017 Prince Michael International Road Safety Award (PMIRSA) for excellence in Road Safety Management. Each year the most outstanding examples of international road safety initiatives receive public recognition through these awards. This year the College was invited to a Gala Presentation held in London at The Savoy Hotel, and was presented with the Award by His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent.

In presenting the Award, Prince Michael congratulated the College as follows, 'The ACRS is approaching it's 30th anniversary and has become a thoroughly well-respected, inclusive and truly collaborative organisation bringing together the wide stakeholder networks across Australasia.'

ACRS President Lauchlan McIntosh AM said, 'The Prince Michael Awards play a vital role in recognising the immense amount of work that takes place in road safety worldwide, and as President of the College I am delighted to accept this award on behalf of the College's many members who continue to work tirelessly to reduce road trauma.

'For those who work in road safety it can sometimes feel like a never-ending or thankless task, however those who find themselves in this field often develop a life long passion for it. As President of the College I thank our members and supporters for your ongoing commitment and perseverance - without your support the College would not succeed. I am proud to say that our College Executive Committee and Fellows, and our hundreds of members, constitute a strong and cohesive team across Australasia, supporting a unique and apolitical partnership between all levels of government through to all other sectors such as research, community organisations, police and educators, economists, and on through to interested members of the public.'

'There is so much more that can be done, there are actions and solutions that we know work and that can be implemented now. There are also emerging opportunities to reduce road trauma, and we look forward to supporting their implementation as we move Towards Zero', said Mr McIntosh.
