Royal Award for Cambridgeshire

3 November 2008

A scheme piloted by Cambridgeshire County Council Road Safety Team to save the lives of motorists who drive as part of their work has received a Prince Michael International Road Safety Award for its 'We Mean Business' project.

The project targets company directors and managers to develop and implement work related road safety policies, and enables companies to help themselves to reduce road accidents. The initial programme consisted of eight one day seminars for small and medium enterprises across Cambridgeshire, informing them of the legal requirements for work related driving, the benefits of writing work related road safety policies, and the methods to write and implement them.

Presenting the award today at Shire Hall Cambridge, Mrs Nigel Pearson – The High Sherriff said: “ Many company directors simply do not understand their duty to their own drivers – The Cambridgeshire scheme has gone a long way to changing perceptions; it is a fine example which other authorities should follow.”
