His Royal Highness Prince Michael of Kent is more used to giving awards than receiving them. The Prince Michael International Road Safety Awards recognise achievements and innovations that improve standards of road safety around the world, and have been running since 1987.

But the Prince’s road safety work goes much further than the Awards themselves – he works tirelessly to promote road safety, to raise awareness and to improve standards, giving up his own time to travel the world, all in the name of saving lives.

Prince Michael has also been instrumental in the launch of the global Decade of Action for Road Safety.
