National Transport Commission (NTC) Deputy Chairman Ian Johnston has been inducted into the first Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) hall of fame.

Johnston has been recognised for his contribution to ARRB and the transport industry. He joined ARRB in 1979 as one of three scientists leading the organisation’s research into human factors and road safety.

He listed his major achievement as convincing the ARRB’s board to fund research into the effects of alcohol-affected drivers on the roads.

Johnston says the most satisfying aspect of his career has been working on improving road safety.

"I feel very fortunate in being able to assist in saving and reducing injuries, as road crashes place an enormous burden on our society," he says.

NTC CEO Nick Dimopoulos says Johnston has been an asset to the NTC since his appointment as commissioner in 2008.
