June, 2018

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.

On 27 January the general director of traffic awarded to Luis Montoro González , director of INTRAS, the Medal of Merit of Road Safety, in the category of silver, in recognition to the technical contributions and the pedagogical and training work of the University Research Institute of Traffic and Road Safety.

The awarding act took place as part of the conferences for the presentation of 1999 as the year of Road Safety Education , held from 25 to 29 January in the city of Palma de Mallorca.

The initiative that has given rise to the granting of this award by the Ministry of Internal Affairs proposed by the DGT means the recognition to the work done by the INTRAS for improving road safety.

The multiple collaborations with public institutions, different orientation activities, additional to the training of the members of the Guardia Civil and local police, and, ultimately, to the special tendency towards road safety shown by its director, have created the propitious conditions required in the article 1 of the Royal Decree 2464/74, 9 August, which states: “… the Medal of Merit to Road Safety for awarding natural or legal persons who are distinguished by their activities in favour to road safety(…) or by their relevant collaboration with the authorities and agents to which competes its planning and control, serving eminently both from the pedagogical and technical point of view, and from the economic and social order".

The INTRAS mission is to work for our society in the improvement of road safety, through research and intervention on the human factor and in its relation with the use of technology. The awarding of this medal is the recognition to this task, to their promoters and of all who to a greater or lesser extent have collaborated in this area of work of the INTRAS.
