Recognizing Outstanding Achievement in Accomplishing the U.N.'s Decade of Action Challenge

On May 11, 2011, the Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020 was launched in more than 100 countries, with one goal: to prevent five million road traffic deaths globally by 2020. Responsible and accountable road safety leadership at national, regional, city levels will be vital to the success of this venture.

In 2012, recognizing the value of political leadership to drive road safety strategies, His Excellency Abdullah Al-Mogbel, Chairman of International Road Federation (IRF Global), instituted an annual IRF "Find A Way" Global Road Safety Award that recognizes outstanding commitment to safer roads by national, regional, or city government. The award is presented every year on the anniversary of the launch of the Decade of Action.

The winner of the IRF Find A Way Award will have demonstrated commitment to improve road safety through significant changes in government policy designed to reduce road fatalities and/or serious injuries on a country’s roads. These policies may be related any of the Five Pillars in the Decade of Action strategic plan, such as  motorist or pedestrian education, enforcement efforts, vehicle improvements, road improvements including use of best practices and state of the art technologies and/or emergency vehicle response methods.
