The AAMVA Martha Irwin Distinguished Service Award for Highway Safety is presented annually to a member law enforcement jurisdiction, an individual, or an organization whose primary function is directly associated with highway and traffic safety efforts.
Effective with the 2011 Award, there will no longer be an agency category. Only individuals will be considered for the "Martha Irwin Lifetime Achievement Award".
