Entries are being sought for an award which recognises initiatives, carried out by or in partnership with UK police forces, which have demonstrated a ‘practical benefit’ in helping to improve road safety.
Now in their second year, DriveTech’s Vision Zero Awards aim to celebrate successes and share best practice.
The awards are available to anyone operating road safety campaigns within a police territory – including road safety partnerships.
The winning entry will receive £5,000 towards their campaign, with two runners-up receiving £1,500 each for the same purpose.
The 2019 award was won by Derbyshire Police (pictured) for ‘UpRight’ – a campaign which encourages less experienced or returning-to-biking riders to undertake further training.
Des Morrison, police contracts director at DriveTech, said: “We are delighted to be able to build upon the success of our inaugural 2019 Vision Zero awards as we launch the 2020 opportunity.
“The number and quality of the road safety initiatives covered within last year’s submissions were excellent.
“We look forward to receiving, showcasing and rewarding similarly good initiatives no matter how large or small during 2020. Partnership working for the benefit of road safety remains a crucial priority for DriveTech and all our partners.”
The deadline for submission is 31 December, with the winners being announced in January/February 2021.
