The winners of the 2019 3M Trafic Safety Innovation Awards were announced at the 2019 Transportation Conference
The 3M Traffic Safety Innovation Award is based on the Safe System approach. The Safe System approach aims for a more forgiving road system that takes human fallibility and vulnerability into account. Under a Safe System we design the whole transport system to protect people from death and serious injury.
The Transportation Group aims to advance the knowledge base and practice of the transportation profession in New Zealand. The Tertiary Study Grant is for $10,000 for a member of the Transportation Group to undertake tertiary study to advance the knowledge base and practice of transportation in New Zealand.
Each year the Group provides a Transport Research Award (formerly known the Study Award) worth up to $8,000 for a Group member (or members) to undertake study in New Zealand or overseas, to learn about issues that are important and topical in the transportation area, and then to spread that useful and usable knowledge to peers.
