Road markings specialist Evonik
is opening its road safety awards for entries. The firm was a pioneer of MMA cold plastic road markings and established its awards system last year in a bid to help improve road safety and disseminate best practices. Following the successful introduction of these awards last year, Evonik will again elect and award a public authority for its efforts in improving road safety. The winner of this award will be selected by an independent jury consisting of international road safety experts.
With this award, Evonik wishes to raise awareness for road safety requirements, especially those addressing the needs of vulnerable road users, and highlight best practices in this field. Key criteria for the winning project or initiative are its contribution to road safety and sustainability as well as its innovative character and potential replicability.
Project candidates can include any completed infrastructure initiative which includes some form of road marking with at least a one year track record. Meanwhile qualified applicants are public authorities from a city, state, national or regional level, responsible for such an initiative.
The €10,000 prize will be awarded in the form of a sponsored road marking application, a donation of traffic safety related items, or a donation to a non-profit organisation.
