Still looking …..

At least Government is looking at doing things about road safety. I would still like to see concrete plans and a timetable. There’s been enough time – these deaths did not happen overnight.

(I am indebted to my fellow blogger Dave G for this – from last August. The RG reported: “Transport and Tourism Minister Shawn Crockwell told the House of Assembly in March last year that his ministry intended to seek approval from the Cabinet to lower the blood-alcohol limit, introduce roadside breath tests and install speed cameras.” What did he say about speed cameras today?)

Speaking of concrete plans – I understand both the police and CADA are putting the finishing touches to their respective road safety plans.

However, I believe – and please I’d like to be corrected on this – that they are separate plans. If that is the case I believe it is a missed opportunity to have one co-ordinated plan to tackle the murder on our roads.

PS. I’m not particularly impressed by the Shadow Minister’s response to the road fatalities either. He manages to make political gain out of it (how many died under the PLP’s watch?) and suggests forming a talking shop, er, a mean a committee ….
