Welsh awards recognise personal contributions to road safety

Three SCPs are among five individuals recognised by Road Safety Wales for making a ‘real commitment to road safety’ and going ‘above and beyond what would normally be expected of them’.

Each year, road safety professionals are given the opportunity to nominate individuals, groups and organisations for the Road Safety Wales Awards.

The 2022 winners have ‘demonstrated excellent road safety practice, created innovative projects or made a personal contribution to keeping other people safe on the roads’.

Sue Storch, vice-chair of Road Safety Wales, said: “Even with the enormous challenges we have all faced over the past two years, it hasn’t stopped people from going above and beyond to help others in their community.

“These people often have other work commitments, but they have still taken the time and effort to assist with making Welsh roads a safer place for everyone.”

The award winners:

Carol Evans
Carol Evans recently hung up her jacket and patrol sign for the final time, retiring after an amazing 35-year career as School Crossing Patrol Officer at Pontrhondda Primary School.

Becci Cleary was instrumental in organising a riding event around Dinas Powys village, to raise awareness and educate drivers on how to pass horses safely on the roads and has another event planned for September 2022.

Mark Jempson
Since qualifying as an ADI in 2012, Mark has been a ‘huge asset’ to Pembrokeshire County Council’s road safety team.
