Euro NCAP wins Prince Michael International Safety Award

Prince Michael’s International Road Safety Awards are made in recognition of outstanding contributions to improving road safety. In presenting the Special International Award for Innovation to Euro NCAP, His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent recognized Euro NCAP’s outstanding achievement in accelerating the introduction of safer cars to European roads.

Euro NCAP was established in 1997 and is now backed by seven European Governments, the European Commission and motoring and consumer organizations in every EU country. The organization has rapidly become a catalyst for encouraging significant safety improvements to new car design.

His Royal Highness describes Euro NCAP as, “instrumental in designing and implementing innovative programs that save so many lives”. The award was presented during the ‘Make Roads Safe – a Call for a Decade of Action for Road Safety Campaign’ event held in Moscow, Russia. The campaign is calling on governments attending the first UN global Ministerial Conference to agree action to reduce by 50% the projected increase in road deaths to 2020.

Dr Michiel van Ratingen, secretary general, who accepted the award on behalf of Euro NCAP, says, “We are delighted to accept this reward, which recognizes Euro NCAP’s work in ensuring our testing program remains current and up to date with the latest safety technologies. It makes us all very proud and our hard work worthwhile. Thank you for all the support given by consumers and industry.”
