For more than 50 years, Evonik – the inventor of MMA cold plastic road markings - has been at the forefront in efforts to improve road safety and disseminate best practices. Building up on the success of the first edition last year, EVONIK will again select and award this year 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.

According to the World Health Organization, half of the world's road traffic deaths occur among vulnerable road users. The provision of innovative and forgiving road infrastructure and significant change in the behaviour of all road users are key factors to succeed in halving the number of traffic fatalities. 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.

The Evonik Road Safety Award is designed to support sustainable road safety initiatives. It acknowledges and rewards the contributions to road safety of public authorities worldwide. The prize is bestowed by Evonik upon identification of the winner by an independent jury of internationally recognized experts in the field of road safety, transport, and city design; among others from the International Road Federation (IRF) Geneva. Key criteria for the winning project/initiative are its contribution to road safety and sustainability as well as its innovative character and potential replicability.

Any completed (at least one year track record) infrastructure initiative which includes some form of road marking is a potential candidate for the award. Public authorities of a city, state, national or regional level, responsible for such an initiative can apply. Application deadline is 30th June, 2017.
