2015 Australasian College of Road Safety Awards – Joint Welcome Message

ACRS  – Austroads – CARRS-Q

 

On behalf of the Australasian College of Road Safety, Austroads and the Centre for Accident Research and Road Safety – Queensland (CARRS-Q), we are delighted to invite you join us in celebrating excellence in road safety at the 2015 Australasian College of Road Safety Awards to be held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Queensland, Australia, on Wednesday 14 October 2015.

This prestigious award ceremony  will take place at the inaugural 2015 Australasian Road Safety Conference, which is the result of a successful merger of Australasia’s two premier road safety conferences: the Australasian College of Road Safety Conference, and the Australasian Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conference.

“This inaugural conference will bring a point of new emphasis
– a progressive change to engage with a greater mix of stakeholders.”

Please find out more information on the 2015 Australasian Road Safety Conference website.

The 2015 Australasian College of Road Safety Awards will continue the tradition of the original Australasian road safety awards and conferences by recognising and celebrating exemplary projects and people working hard across our region to save lives and reduce injuries on our roads.

These awards will include the following presentations:

  • The prestigious Australasian College of Road Safety Fellowship Award in recognition of exemplary contribution being made by an individual to road safety in Australasia.  This award has been recognising outstanding individuals since its inception in 1991.  In 2014 the ACRS Patron, the Governor-General of Australia Sir Peter Cosgrove presented this award – see the Press Release & Photo Gallery here.
  • Australasia’s premier road safety award recognising projects that exhibit exemplary innovation and effectiveness to save lives and injuries on roads – the 3M-ACRS Diamond Road Safety Awards.  This award is entering its 5th year and is recognised as Australasia’s premier road safety award recognising an outstanding road trauma reduction project.  In 2014 the ACRS Patron, the Governor-General of Australia Sir Peter Cosgrove presented this award – see the Press Release & Photo Gallery here.
  • ARSC2015 Conference Awards
  • Other awards as deemed appropriate by the joint hosts for 2015: ACRS, Austroads and CARRS-Q.
