The Operation Tramline team was among the four individuals and initiatives recognised at the 2018 Road Safety Wales Awards’ ceremony.

Presented at the annual Road Safety Wales Conference (19 June), the awards showcase the good road safety practice, innovative projects and personal contributions being undertaken in Wales.

The awards seek to recognise individuals, groups and organisations that have made a ‘real commitment to road safety, above and beyond what would normally be expected of them’.

Among the 2018 winners was the Operation Tramline team (pictured) from South Wales Police and the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).

Under ‘Operation Tramline’, South Wales Police used the elevated position in a HGV tractor unit – donated by Highways England – to identify and record potentially dangerous driver behaviour, using a hand held video camera.

The other winners were:

  • Helen Jenkins – in recognition of her dedication to cycle training in Ceredigion
  • Victoria Daniel – in recognition of her work promoting active travel, cycling and scooting to her pupils in addition to her teaching responsibilities
  • Jonah and Sue MacGill – in recognition of their continued promotion of motorcycle safety through the Llandovery Motorbike Weekend

The 2018 Road Safety Wales Conference covered topics including advances in technology and highlighted the varied enforcement work being carried out across Wales.

Teresa Ciano, the new chair of Road Safety Wales, said: “The Road Safety Wales Awards recognise the good road safety practice, innovative projects and personal contributions being undertaken in Wales.

“Today’s award recipients are not necessarily road safety professionals, but all have been undertaking road safety professionally.”
