Tryangle asks whether the latest death on Bermuda's roads will prompt the Premier to finally get serious about improving Bermuda's appalling road safety record.
Of course it won't. A week from now this latest death will have been forgotten, just like all the rest.
From today's Royal Gazette:
"With concerns again raised yesterday over how to tackle the crisis, Police and campaigners pledged that new plans – including recommendations for speed cameras and random sobriety checks – will be announced within weeks."
Translation: expect frak all to change. The Government has been dilly-dallying over speed cameras for years now. In March 2005, then-Public Safety Minister Randy Horton announced that $100k had been set aside for their installation. But that figure (for the 2005/6 financial year) was eventually revised down to $7k, and in the 2006/7 financial year there was no money in the budget for them. In July 2006, Ewart Brown asked Randy Horton to expedite their installation, but again, nothing happened.
So much for Ewart Brown's supposed ability to get things done.
