Entries open for FirstCar Young Driver Road Safety Awards 2018

8 November 2017

The FirstCar Young Driver Road Safety Awards have been launched, rewarding excellence in the road safety industry for initiatives specifically targeting the high-risk, young driver.

These Awards were initially launched in 2015 to reward the unsung heroes in road safety and to recognise the excellent work of road safety professionals in seeking to reduce casualties amongst young drivers. They have quickly established themselves within the road safety community and are highly sought after by the professionals working within the industry.

The 2018 FirstCar Young Driver Road Safety Awards are once again sponsored by Road Safety Support* (RSS) and will be presented at the Young Driver Focus conference, at the Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall, London on 25th April 2018.

Entries to the five awards categories are now open:

  • Best New Scheme
  • Best Education and Training Initiative
  • Best Partnership Scheme
  • Best Young Driver Media Campaign
  • Best Private Sector Initiative.

The awards judging panel will be looking for schemes with clear and measurable aims and objectives and for evidence of evaluation.

James Evans, Founder of FirstCar, said, “We were delighted with how successful the awards are and are very keen to recognise all the hard work that goes on in this sector, which is often unrewarded.’’

Emma Kelly, Business Development and PR Manager at Road Safety Support said, “‘We need innovative projects that are well evidenced and robustly evaluated to help us to reduce collisions involving young road users. Partnering with FirstCar via the awards are so important in assisting us to push the boundaries and share new and innovative methods.

We are excited to be supporting these prestigious awards again this year. It is only by working together in collaboration that, ultimately, we will save lives on our roads.”
