EuroRAP wins Prince Michael International Road Safety Award

The European Road Assessment Program (EuroRAP) has been presented with a Special International Award by Prince Michael of Kent, in recognition of the important role in bringing the program’s activities and methodology to countries throughout Europe. The award was also presented in recognition of the organization’s pivotal role in establishing the International Road Assessment Program (iRAP). Methodology and standards developed by EuroRAP are now being rolled out through out the world in road assessment programs.

The aim of EuroRAP is to provide a safety rating for roads across Europe, which will generate information for the public and give road engineers and planners vital benchmarking information. Its primary objective is to reduce death and serious injury on European roads through a program of systematic testing, which will identify major safety shortcomings that can be addressed by practical road improvement measures. It is a not-for-profit Association whose members include auto clubs, road safety charities and road authorities and agencies from across Europe. The organization is supported by the European Commission, all major motor manufacturers, the FIA Foundation and other road safety stakeholders.

EuroRAP was one of a number of organizations that received awards for outstanding effort in promoting road safety on the global agenda. John Dawson, chairman of EuroRAP, says that the award was welcome recognition of the dedication of those working for and with EuroRAP to improving road safety. “Our team is rightly proud of its key role in establishing iRAP and will continue to help and guide wherever possible,” he says. EuroRap is the sister program to EuroNCAP, which also won an award.
