The London Road Safety Council runs an award scheme to highlight and reward innovation and good practice in road safety education in London. Introduced in 2003 as the Laurie Bunn Award, in memory of a past Chairman, the Trustees have now renamed it the London Road Safety Award. Nominations are now invited for the 2018 presentation which will be made on 20 July at our 101st Annual General Meeting.
