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.’

With support from the Flemish Ministry of Mobility, Social Economy and Equal Opportunities, Belgium and the FIA Foundation, World Health Organization (WHO) recently hosted the first "Global Meeting of NGOs Advocating for Road Safety" in Brussels, Belgium. The meeting brought together more than 100 participants from 70 road safety and road victims' organizations from more than 40 countries. Many of the participating NGOs were created by people who are either victims of road traffic crash or they had lost a child or loved one in a road traffic crash.

The Chariots of Destiny Organization recently joined the MVA fund members at the annual wheelchair fun ride event which took place on the streets of Windhoek, Namibia on 10 October 2009.

The event brought together members of the public, media personalities, road crash victims and their families creating an opportunity for members to interact, network and create awareness about the importance of road safety and to encourage those injured to"move forward"even after disability.
