Thanks Shawn

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.

Thanks Shawn.

  1. Reblogged this on "catch a fire" and commented:
    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?

  2. He simply doesn’t care. Lip service, that is it. I have zero faith in Crockwell in this role. “Meetings” and “working groups” are it for him. Maybe the Tourism hat is more lucrative. And where’s the Shadow Minister to put some heat on him? Lord, they all suck.

  3. That boy does not disappoint (sigh).

    Not sure if I am reading what is/isn’t happening re: road safety correctly, but it is as though there is always a reluctance to do what needs to be done. The PLP were not better/no worse.

    Are they some how afraid of upsetting the vast majority of Bermudians? Do the vast majority of Bermudians see themselves as “good” drivers, such that anything the Govt introduces by way of trying to improve safety is seen as hitting the majority for the sake of the minority?
