Anne-Marie Penny

Senior Road Safety Policy Adviser, National Highways

Anne-Marie has worked in road safety for two decades.  She was involved in a life-threatening motorbike crash in 1995 and her passion to reduce road crash casualties and the physical and mental trauma that results, stems from this experience.

Following 14 years in the private sector working in project management and customer delivery, Anne-Marie joined Kent County Council’s road safety team, where she was the Road Safety Development Manager and led on motorcycle safety before moving on to manage the Kent and Medway Safety Camera Partnership.

Now working for National Highways, Anne-Marie leads on the Driving for Better Business Programme, a key strategic programme from National Highways, engaging with employers to improve work-related road risk.

Her work in Road Safety has clearly rubbed off onto her children. Her son works for the South East Coast Ambulance Service and her daughter is a forensic scientist.  Unfortunately, her two dogs do not have any road sense at all!
