Dr. Jeffrey P. Michael
Associate Administrator for Research and Program Development at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), UK
At 25 years of age, the Institute has reached an important milestone. Organisations, like people, grow into maturity and I think the IRTE has come through its formative stages and is now into a period of prime productivity and growth. I am pleased to be engaged with the Institute over the past several years and to play a small part in this growth, to see its horizons expand to include a new national alcohol laboratory, to attend the inauguration of the Road Safety Hall of Nations, to see it host regular international conferences on important safety topics, and to be present when the Institute earned the title of Center of Excellence for Road Safety in South East Asia. All this from a young organisation with a long and prosperous life ahead.
Gen. Manvender Singh
On completion of 25 years of exceptional dedication and perseverance in nurturing a truly world class facility to guide the destiny of road safety in India, I compliment Dr Rohit Baluja and the entire Team of IRTE. As the Provost Marshal of the Indian Army, I immensely benefitted from their advice and support on matters of road safety, investigations, driver training and traffic management. Structured advice on specific needs, qualitatively enhanced safety and control measures within the Army. I found the entire IRTE Team most value based, passionate, innovative and progressive in their working ethos. My best wishes for their continued growth and service to the Nation.
