Yesterday, the award ceremony for the Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards was held at the Savoy Hotel, London, UK. The awards are presented by HRH Prince Michael of Kent, who has been a strong supporter of road safety for many years. This year, the Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards celebrated its 30th year and was described by Jesse Norman, the UK Minister responsible for road safety, speaking at the event, as the “Oscars for road safety.”
