Dr. Francisco Alonso, Director of INTRAS and the DATS research group, has been awarded the Road Medal of Honor for the merits acquired during his professional life, at an event held on June 7.

In his double facet of professor and researcher for 30 years, Dr. Francisco Alonso has treated the accident rate from theory and science. Psychologist of formation, began his trajectory in the Unit of Investigation in Psychology of the Traffic in the University of Valencia. From here, he encouraged and promoted the creation of the Institute he now runs, a center that is a national reference in terms of traffic and road safety. But his works, far from being reduced to the theoretical field, have always had a clear practical aspect. It has contributed, for example, to the signaling of the accident concentration sections, the reform of the Criminal Code or the development of numerous regulations and regulations in Spain and in other countries. As a researcher, he has participated or directed more than 160 projects for administrations, institutions and companies. All this work can only be justified, according to those who know it well, by motivation and the illusion of fulfilling a moral duty that aims to save lives.
