We are delighted to have partnered with the Road Safety Authority of Ireland at this years Smedias.

Writers and journalists have a big influence in spreading the message of road safety, and the RSA continue to try and make the roads safer for every driver and passenger in Ireland.

2017 recorded 159 fatalities on the roads over the course of the year, the lowest figure since 1959.

This shows that the RSA are making the roads safer, and will continue to do so in the future.

The RSA recognise the importance of young journalists researching and writing on the topic of road safety, which made them the perfect partners for this award.

A big congratulations to Cian Carton from UCD who took the RSA award for Journalism relating to Road Safety home on the night.
