Entries are being sought for the Northern Ireland Road Safety Awards 2018, held to recognise the contribution of individuals and organisations who work to improve road safety in their communities.
The awards, which are organised by Road Safe NI, are split into 10 categories:, Driving Instructor, Emergency Services Person Voluntary Sector, Primary School, Lollipop Person, Secondary School, LGV/ HGV, Business, Two Wheels and Lifetime Achievement.
One of the highlights of the 2017 awards ceremony was the presentation of a ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ to Hugh McIIhatton from Disability Action.
Disability Action works to ensure that people with disabilities attain their full rights as citizens, by supporting inclusion, influencing Government policy and changing attitudes in partnership with disabled people.
Davy Jackson, Road Safe NI, said: “We’ve had a great response to the awards over the last three years and we now look forward to emulating that with our 2018 nominees.
“It is vitally important that we properly recognise the hard work and commitment that goes into helping keep our roads safe.”
The closing date for entries is 31 October, with further details available via the Road Safe NI website. The awards ceremony takes place at Cultra Manor on 23 November, as part of Road Safety Week 2018.
