8 March 2017

Story from Road Safety GB.

Following a record number of entries, the shortlist for the 2017 FirstCar Young Driver Road Safety Awards has been unveiled.

These awards will be presented at the Young Driver Focus event in London on 26th April.

Now in its third year, the awards' scheme recognises the efforts of road safety professionals to reduce casualties among young drivers.

The 2017 awards will be presented in five categories: education and training initiative, new scheme, partnership scheme, private sector initiative and young driver campaign.

20 public and private sector organisations feature on the 2017 shortlist.

Announcing the shortlist, James Evans, founder of FirstCar, said, “With a record number of entries this year, the judging panel had a tough task in drawing up the shortlist, and I’d like to thank them all for the time and deliberations. We’d also like to thank everyone who took the time and trouble to submit an entry - the standard this year was really high and in many categories, the judges' collective scores were very close It’s exciting to see so much innovation from road safety practitioners across the UK, particularly when paired with robust evidence of need, behaviour change and evaluation.

“We look forward to the awards' ceremony at Young Driver Focus on 26 April, when Med Hughes from RSS, who are sponsoring the awards again this year, will reveal the winning initiatives.”
