“To reason with governments, as they have been existing for ages, is to argue with brutes. It is only from the nations themselves that reforms can be expected,” Thomas Paine.
I sit down everyday to watch the news and realise the policies the government makes are the work of grapevines. Particularly policies that affect our transport system . They make no scientific valuation of the dangers our roads pose. We have more problems on roads that keep pilling up daily. We cannot reason this way and expect policies to work. A policy of ‘naming and shaming’ is ineffective if everyone has been named and shamed.
Chris Hadfield said “Ultimately, leadership is not about glorious crowning acts. It’s about keeping your team focused on a goal and motivated to do their best to achieve it, especially when stakes are high and the consequences really matter. It is about laying the ground work for others success, and standing back and letting them shine.“
Our leaders will always blame the drivers but do not see the log in their eyes. If you look at some of our busy roads they have potholes and pimply as a teenagers face.
We have better policy advisers in this country , I am not one, who can make this country a small heaven. But I think we can solve our problems using technology. This is an effective way to collect our data. I am waiting to see the new driving license solve most of our problems, but will corruption let it? This is another line of savagery. The discouraging bit is that the taxpayer will suffer. Just because you have stolen someone’s heart, luckily owned and occupied as a home doesn’t give you the audacity to enforce hurtful policies.
If our agencies like NTSA and KENHA could listen to the suggestions from the public, we would be better almost to best. But they think they are gods sent to save us from the jaws of death.
