Who has blood on their hands?

Yet another tragedy on our roads. The ninth fatality this year. That is more than one a month.

Imagine the outcry and the resources that would be committed if they were gang-related deaths.

Yet what happens? More words will be spoken, condolences (quite rightly) issued and then those who have the power, the budget and the authority to do something will head off on their summer vacations (if they haven’t already gone.)

It is beyond being imcomprehensible that so little is done to try and correct the issues that lead to such a toll of death and injury.

It is a dereliction of duty – the duty placed in those people who have been elected or placed into a position of authority.

I’ve written many times, here and elsewhere, that there is no one solution – it is a mixture of enforcement, education and prevention. It is not rocket science and other countries around the world have successfully implemented policies.

What does Bermuda do? Well, we know the answer to that and we know, too, the consequences. Who has blood on their hands?

  1. Why is there no political will to address this issue? Countless Ministers of Transport, Public Works, Health, etc. over the years have offered merely variations of ‘please slow down’ press statements. Nobody in a position of influence has spearheaded actual initiatives. And for all that the Road Safety attempts to do, their influence can only go so far.
