RAC Foundation wins Premier Award

16 December 2011

The 2011 Prince Michael International Premier Award has been won by The Royal Automobile Club Foundation for Motoring  - a charity which explores the economic, mobility, safety and environmental issues relating to roads and responsible road users. Independent and authoritative research, carried out for the public benefit, is central to the Foundation’s activities.

In 2010/11 the Foundation undertook or commissioned more than a dozen pieces of research, many directly relating to road safety issues. Its highly influential report ‘The Effectiveness of Speed Cameras- A review of evidence’ had a significant impact on policy and aided numerous police forces both in the UK and further afield to make the case for speed camera enforcement in the face of significant funding challenges.


The Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards recognise achievements and innovations which will improve road safety. Each year the most outstanding examples of international road safety initiatives are given public recognition through the scheme. 

The full list of award winners is available here.
