3M-ACRS Diamond Road Safety Award

Australasia's premier road safety award.

In 2011, 3M and ACRS joined forces to create Australasia’s premier road safety award, the 3M-ACRS Diamond Road Safety Award, to recognise people and projects who provide exemplary innovation and effectiveness to save lives and injuries on roads.

The 3M-ACRS Diamond Road Safety award calls for road safety practitioners from the public or private sectors to submit highly innovative, cost-effective road safety initiatives/programmes which they have recently developed that stand out from standard.

This award is Australasia’s premier road safety award recognising an outstanding road trauma reduction project.

Nominations for the 2023 ACRS Awards will open in May 2023. The winners will be announced at Conference Dinner during the 2023 Australasian Road Safety Conference.
