I gotta agree, the priorities seem rather confused. There’s been little to no talk/consultation or awareness raising about these issues, but there’s been clear social anguish at the continuing carnage on our roads, and a supposed commitment by the Government to address it.
And what do we get? Government backs down in the face of the alcohol lobby from taking some steps that might just work, and instead drops the ball and does a Monty Python ‘something completely different’ by putting its energies into tinted windows and hands-free kit.
Is this what counts as tragicomic?
Months after the police launched a road safety campaign, months after Transport Minister Shawn Crockwell announced a working group to look at road safety, we get an announcement about tints and hands-free kit.
SMH! What matters more? Unbelievable, just unbelievable.
