Road Safety GB is calling for nominations for the Lynda Chalker Award.
The Lynda Chalker Award is presented by Road Safety GB to an individual or organisation who has contributed significantly to road safety in the United Kingdom.
Lynda Chalker (now the Baroness Chalker of Wallasey), who was transport minister in the mid-1980s, presented LARSOA (as Road Safety GB was previously known) with a carriage clock to be used for the Award when she moved to a new post in overseas development.
Recipients kept the carriage clock for a year and also received a replica of the clock as a permanent acknowledgement of their achievements.
When Road Safety GB re-branded in 2009 the award changed to an engraved glass sculpture from the National Glass Centre. The first recipient of this new Lynda Chalker Award was Robert Gifford, executive director of PACTS.
Submissions should outline the significant contribution the nominee has made to road safety. Nominations should be kept to a single side of A4 and should be emailed for the attention of Brian Hogarth by the end of September.
