Northern Ireland is calling on driving instructor nominations for its first Road Safety awards.
Sponsored by accident management specialist Crash Services and supported by the Road Safety Council NI, the awards are for those that deserve recognition for the contribution made in helping to reduce the number of injuries and deaths on Northern Ireland’s roads.
The categories include one for driving instructors that have demonstrated a commitment to keeping Northern Ireland’s and their own communities’ roads safe.
Crash Services sales and marketing director Tony McKeown (pictured right) said: “Northern Ireland’s Road Safety Awards have been established to properly acknowledge the huge effort which goes in to helping keep our roads safe and help eliminate the tragic incidents of death and injury.
“It’s vitally important that we recognise the amazing work which is being done by individuals and groups within our communities who work tirelessly on our behalf to keep us safe.”
The winners will be announced at a ceremony at Cultra Manor on Friday 27 November and the categories are:

The closing date for entries is Friday 6 November at 6pm.
