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.
Due to inactivity caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the award will not be presented in 2021 - as was the case in 2020.
