  The Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards recognize   achievements and  innovations which will improve road safety. Each   year the most outstanding examples of  international road safety   initiatives are given public recognition through the scheme  which was   founded by HRH Prince Michael of Kent, Patron of the Commission for   Global  Road Safety

  Opening the pan-African Make Roads Safe Conference in Dar es   Salaam Tanzania on 8  July, HRH Prince Michael of Kent, Royal Patron   of the Commission for Global Road Safety  congratulated three winners   of his International Road Safety Awards  by saying: ‘My  Awards   recognize innovation and reward success but most importantly they help to  communicate these ideas to a wider audience, spreading knowledge and awareness of  what works in road safety. I am therefore delighted that here today are three new winners of my awards; each very different but each an example of what can be done to make roads safer.’

 Later that evening he presented his commendation award to the  Chariots of Destiny Organization in recognition of what the  organization has achieved to raise awareness in Kenya and further  across the world in regard to road safety. Casey Marenge Founder and Executive Director of the Chariots of Destiny  organization-was  there to receive the award on behalf of COD.
