2016 Evonik Road Safety Award Ceremony
The Evonik Road Safety Award was presented to Mr. Smai Chotisakul, Deputy General of Thailand's Department of Rural Roads, responsible for the school zone project, at the International Road Federation (IRF) in Geneva. The project and future approaches to further improve road safety were part of the expert discussion.
The Department of Rural Roads has asked Evonik to donate the award's €10,000 cash prize to a children’s hospital in Thailand, as part of their project’s objective to enhance child and adolescent safety in the country. The donation was handed over to Queen Sirikit National Institute of Child Health at a festive ceremony at the Residence of the German Ambassador in Bangkok, which ministers and road authorities attended.
