Congratulations to Simon Ettinghausen who was the recipient of the 2003 Dominic Fox Award. This is awarded to the person who has made a significant contribution to the safety of young drivers and riders.

Due to commitments overseas as a TA reservist, the Award was accepted on his behalf by his deputy Christine Eaton.

Although IRSO nominated Simon for the Award, it was heavily supported by LARSOA, LAPC and BRAG. Simon is a very respected member of the road safety profession. His passion for improving the lives of many people has ensured that he has, and continues to play a major role both at a local level in Bexley, and at a national level in various roles. Well done Simon!

Board meet HRH Prince Michael

At the recent Board of Management meeting, hosted by TRL, Board members were able to meet HRH Prince Michael, Patron of the Institute of Road Safety Officers. Prince Michael was at TRL presenting an International Road Safety Award but took the time to speak to all Board members and allow for photographs to be taken in front of the new IRSO display (pictured here with IRSO Chairman Phil Moore).
