How's that Road Safety Summit coming along, Min. Trans?

It's been a couple of weeks since the Ministry of Transport belatedly recognized there was a serious issue with road safety and the Culture of Recklessness on Bermuda's roads.

Since then we have had a silly hashtag 'promotion' that I don't think anybody cares about, a couple of police traffic blitzes in the usual spots to nail the typical 'low-hanging fruit', and zilch else.

Business as usual, for the powers that be.

Meanwhile we have had some controversial Cabinet changes, and the unfortunate (and likely avoidable) issue with Government workers and furlough day agreements, that have had the side-effect of distracting everyone from other issues, including road safety.

Of course, there's no reason why the Minister of Transport couldn't continue (or start) work on whatever campaigns or strategies that have been presented to him and his departments.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

This is why some people question the paycheck that Government Ministers get.
