After 28 years of road safety service with Warwickshire County Council, Stan Milewski retired in May this year.
Stan began his career teaching in Wiltshire and Coventry before joining the Coventry road safety team in 1978. He then had spells with Solihull and West Midlands Council before moving to Warwickshire in 1985 as the northern RSO. His first task was to take over responsibility for the school crossing patrol service from the police.
As principal RSO in Warwickshire, Stan was also a keen supporter of regional and national initiatives and was a popular and colourful figure at conferences. He regularly visited the EU as a road safety adviser and contributed to the work of the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety (PACTS).
Stan’s dedicated work in Warwickshire was recognised nationally on two occasions by the Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards (PMIRSA).
Stan will be spending his retirement supporting his local church community and cruising around the world with his wife Elizabeth.
Everyone at Road Safety GB wishes Stan a very long and happy retirement.
