2022 Conference Awards

Recognising our most outstanding participants.

The Australasian College of Road Safety has over many years offered a variety of Australasian Road Safety Awards presented at the Australasian Road Safety Conference. Awards have also been an integral part of the Australasian Road Safety Research, Policing and Education Conferences, and with the merging of these two conferences to form the Australasian College of Road Safety Awards, a new level of prestige and recognition within the Australasian road safety community has ensued.
