The Nevada Traffic Safety Awards Program

The Nevada Traffic Safety Awards recognize individuals and organizations who have made significant contributions over the past year to transportation safety in Nevada. The program recognizes accomplishments in the public and private sector by individuals, state and local governments, federal agencies, businesses, and non-profit organizations that promote traffic safety. This program is sponsored by the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT), the Nevada Department of Public Safety (DPS), and other traffic safety partners that are dedicated to reducing death and injury on Nevada’s roadways.

The Nevada Traffic Safety Awards are presented annually at the Nevada Traffic Safety Summit. As the summit location rotates between Northern and Southern Nevada each year, the Traffic Safety Awards are granted to individuals or organizations from that region. The 2022 Nevada Traffic Safety Summit is in Northern Nevada. Awards will be presented to recipients north of Tonopah during the Awards Breakfast Ceremony on Thursday, October 20.

Criteria for Selection

There are eight award categories. Those eligible for nomination have made an outstanding effort to eliminate serious injury and fatal crashes on Nevada roadways by furthering traffic safety initiatives through engineering, enforcement, education, emergency management, and/or advocacy. The awardees will be selected by the Awards Committee.
