Safe Roads Alliance to Host the First Annual Global Road Safety Week Relay, Cambridge Mobile Telematics joins as exclusive Platinum Sponsor

BOSTON, March 15th, 2022 – Safe Roads Alliance announced the first Global Road Safety Week Relay to raise awareness for traffic safety and encourage the public, businesses, advocates, state agencies, and survivors to join the movement for safer roads. The Relay began May 15, 2022, and half of the proceeds from the event went to help fund more direct community outreach with programs like Kids Speaking Up for Road Safety. The remaining proceeds will go towards the America Walks Community Change Grants Program. This program is open to any municipality in MA and focuses on micro-grants that fund traffic-calming measures. Examples include painting crosswalks, neighbor ways, tactical urbanism measures, speed bumps, and pedestrian crossing signs. Towns and cities can also put the money towards larger projects.

Cambridge Mobile Telematics (CMT) , the global leader in mobile telematics and analytics and leading advocate for safer roads and drivers, was the exclusive Platinum Partner of the event. 

“Our goal with the Joining Forces for Safer Roads Relay is to increase traffic safety awareness and raise funds to deliver more traffic-calming measures at the local level,” said Emily Stein, President of Safe Roads Alliance. “We’re also excited to take the event global with our friends in the UK from the Andy Cox Challenge and Road Peace, who will be doing their own relay during Global Road Safety Week. We look forward to making this a fun and inclusive event.”

“Our mission at Cambridge Mobile Telematics is to make roads and drivers safer,” said Ryan McMahon, VP of Insurance and Government Affairs at Cambridge Mobile Telematics. “We’re thrilled to partner with Safe Roads Alliance to raise awareness for such a noble cause here in our home state of Massachusetts. We look forward to participating in the event and hope to see local leaders and citizens join the movement to save lives on the road.” 

The event was also sponsored by Safety Insurance, The Office of Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr., and Travelers Marketing. We are very grateful to have such a strong team of sponsors who care deeply about road safety and injury prevention.

The cross-state challenge started in Lenox, Massachusetts, on May 15, 2022, and ended a week later in Boston. The 171-mile route was divided into three-to-six-mile legs, where participants could walk, run, bike, or roll their leg of the challenge at their own pace. People could choose to participate in one or several of the 33 different legs of the relay. With the exception of the first and last leg, participants completed their leg at any day or time during Global Road Safety Week. We have also highlighted nearly two dozen other routes across the state along bike paths and rail trails, which people could opt to do instead of a leg along the route. There was no limit to the number of participants per leg.
