The Road Safety Authority is calling on the people of Cork to submit nominations to the national ‘Leading Lights in Road Safety’ Awards which are returning this year following a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19.

The awards recognise a group or individual who campaigns, educates, and is committed to improving road safety in their locality and across Ireland, and honours the significant contribution made by people and organisations nationwide in reducing deaths and serious injuries on Irish roads.

The 2022 awards will see an emphasis on alternative forms of transport, including a “Sustainable Travel” award category, which recognises a group or individual who have influenced a shift to sustainable travel. A ‘’Future Award’’ will be given to an individual, business or organisation that displays innovation and forward-thinking in promoting road safety. In addition, the Media Award, which is aimed at all journalists and media groups, has been renamed the ‘’Gay Byrne Media Award’’ in honour of the former broadcaster and RSA Chairperson.

Liz O’Donnell, Chairperson of the Road Safety Authority said:

“I am delighted to announce that the much-anticipated Leading Lights awards are returning this year. In communities across Cork, there are unsung heroes working to make our roads safer. These awards recognise the unique contributions made by volunteers, teachers, students, businesses, public bodies, journalists, and community groups in Ireland to reduce serious injuries and deaths on our roads."
