It’s Road Safety Week, and this year the team at Road Safety Education, a nationwide organisation, held the first ever Road Safety Awards! We are honoured to have been invited to present an award on behalf of the whole AMI team. The recipient of the AMI Community Road Safety Award is RoadSafe Northland, and we were delighted to present the award to Gillian Archer.
RoadSafe Northland is a Northland collective of Road Safety Partners and agencies, under the umbrella of the Northland Road Safety Trust. This charitable trust funds, delivers and supports road safety initiatives in the region on behalf of the Whangārei and Kaipara Districts and the Northland Transportation Alliance, comprising all four Northland councils.
While Northland, like the rest of the country, has a challenging road toll, the incidence of young drivers in fatal and serious crashes has significantly reduced in the last couple of years. Programmes, such as RYDA where nearly 5000 Northland students have participated since inception in 2009, has provided a significant contribution to this reduction.
Gillian of RoadSafe Northland had this to say about the award: “I want to thank Road Safety Education and AMI for the AMI Community Award, for recognising the significant partnership that has allowed this programme to develop and grow in our area. It is timely to acknowledge the many local community partners who have supported this programme over the years. As well as the significant support from local AMI staff and the RYDA team, we have a range of contributors including loan cars provided by Dargaville Ford and Pacific Ford, catering by Rapid Relief Team, support staff from People Potential and Rotary and additional funding from COGS and The Warehouse Dargaville, and of course both Whangārei and Kaipara Councils.
“This award is for all of these partners who have made such a significant Young Driver programme possible.”
