2024 Yellow Ribbon Road Safety Alliance Hero Award

The winner of the Road Safety Hero Award is Senior Constable Kenneth Terry, recognised for his exceptional dedication to promoting road safety in North Canterbury. With over 38 years of service in the New Zealand Police force, including 13 years as a school community officer, Kenneth has been instrumental in initiatives like the “Be Safe Be Seen” cycle light programme for school children. His passion for children’s safety and tireless efforts have made him an invaluable asset to the community. Without Kenneth’s commitment, road safety initiatives would not have had the same impact, making him a deserving recipient of this award.

To nominate someone for the award please fill out this Road Safety Hero Award form – nominations open 1 March each year and close the second Friday in May.
