This year's awards will be offered in the following categories:
- Company Driver Safety Award

- Road Safety in the Community Award
- Safe Vehicles Award
- Sustainable Journeys Award
- Road Risk Manager of the Year Award
- Outstanding Commitment to Road Safety Award
The Australasian Fleet Safety Awards are supported by sponsors NZ Transport Agency, SurePlan and Suzuki NZ.
Caroline Perry, Brake's NZ Director, says: "We're delighted that the level of last-minute interest in the Fleet Safety Awards has been so high. Entering the awards is a fantastic opportunity for organisations and individuals to gain recognition for their successes in improving fleet safety, and so we're extending this year's awards deadline to allow these organisations to submit an entry and be in the running for an award. The awards are free and simple to enter, and I'd encourage anyone who has not yet had chance to enter to take advantage of the deadline extension."
