Valerie Platt, partner at RSN Associates, passed away on 3 December 2012 and her funeral will be held on Monday 17 December.
Val was well known in the road safety profession having worked on many projects for local authority road safety teams. She was also the lead presenter and facilitator on the Road Safety GB Phase 2 Road Safety Officer Training course.
In a statement on the RSN website, her business partner Dr Andrew Clayton said: "Val and I had worked together for 25 years, initially at BITER, The British Institute of Traffic Education Research, before we jointly set up RSN Associates in 2000. She was well known throughout the road safety movement, and many road safety officers have attended the Phase II or other training courses with which she will always be remembered.
"Apart from her training work, she was a skilled researcher and worked closely with many local authorities in the development and evaluation of a variety of road safety initiatives.
"I have lost a good friend and valued colleague."
Val will be also greatly missed by her colleagues at TMS Consultancy and her many friends and associates within the road safety profession.
Our sympathies are extended to her family at this sad time. A full obituary will be published here in due course.
