Recognizing the Outstanding Contributions of Community Members through the Road Safety Hero Award.

2023 Yellow Ribbon Road Safety Alliance Hero Award
The winner was Chris Horrocks who has served as our longest-standing member on the Wairarapa Road Safety Council Board (WRSC) until 2022. Representing the Automobile Association, he brought invaluable experience and insight to their meetings, consistently advocating for safer roads. Over a remarkable span of 33 years, Chris dedicated himself to the WRSC since its incorporation as a society. As a volunteer member of the AA, Chris’s commitment was unmistakable and greatly appreciated. His active involvement in meetings and willingness to contribute to road safety events significantly enhanced our community outreach. Without Chris’s steadfast support, their road safety messages would not have resonated as strongly within their community.
Chris’s advocacy extended across various fronts, from championing the cause of youth and older drivers to emphasizing community collaborative messages. His dedication to looking out for individuals of all ages using our roading network has left an enduring impact on our mission for safer roads and is well deserving of our Road Safety Hero Award
