Vice-President Jacques Barrot presents road safety awards
Creation date: 05 December 2006
On 29 November 2006, Jacques Barrot, Vice-President of the European Commission responsible for transport, presented the European Road Safety Charters Excellence in Road Safety Awards. The prizes reward the six organisations which gave, in each of the categories, the best commitments contributing to the overall objective of saving 25 000 lives a year by 2010.
The winners were selected from the more than 500 signatories to the Charter after an independent evaluation by the Commission. Jacques Barrot welcomed the awards, saying that the commitments reflected the variety of the signatory organisations and the diversity of the actions which could be covered by the Charter. He complimented the winners on the quality of their commitments and the innovative ideas they contained. He also thanked all signatories to the Charter for their crucial contribution to road safety, and said that, by combining all those efforts, the European Union could achieve the overall objective.
The signatories were divided into six categories, each providing an excellence award winner: Large businesses, SMEs, Associations/Federations, Institutions, NGOs, Local and regional authorities.
