A senior Metropolitan Police officer has received a Highways Heroes Award for his passion and determination to reduce road death and injury and to support bereaved families.
Detective Chief Superintendent Andy Cox, Operational Command Unit Commander, at the Met Police, received the accolade after raising more than £150,000 for RoadPeace as co-founder of the RoadPeace Challenge campaign, and for his unwavering commitment to raising awareness about road harm.
He was presented with the White Knight Award by Mark Cartwright, Head of Commercial Vehicle Incident Prevention at National Highways, and Meera Naran MBE, an independent road safety campaigner, whose eight-year-old son, Dev, was tragically killed in a road crash in 2018.
The Highways Heroes Awards recognise individuals in the highways industry who go above and beyond to help others and save lives.
