“Alert, the streets are bursting with violence”, “Dear Santa Claus, everything is bad here”, “To the politicians who love us, now I ask that…”, “Three victims in a head-on between two motorcycles”, and so on writing.
These are just some of the titles of the last editorials of our Nicowhich you all know, has been the very emblem of communication on road safety issues for many years, a sort of living message on the subject.
Above all thanks to him, since we have existed as a newspaper, we have made it spokesman of this need to all of you readers, but also towards the institutions and manufacturers that produce motorcycles and also everything needed to drive safely in the city, between the passes, and even on the track.
In this constant and continuous flow we have never missed an opportunity to support campaigns: think, for example, of the adoption of motorcycle safety guardrails, the tax exemption of airbags, potholes, the general revision of an obsolete Highway Code and always too little attentive to the peculiarities of the two wheels.
However, lately, we have noticed that all of these instances were hiring more and more an urgent nature, in a world that is changing with ever greater rapidity and increasingly difficult to understand, by the institutions, but often also by us, who are called to understand, to tell. And, indeed, to denounce.
Today, after so much desperation and so much regret at hearing ourselves screaming but powerless commentators in the face of tragedies and the silence of those called to account for them, we find a reason for satisfaction on Instagram. But above all of hope. Because perhaps our insistence has finally reached ears capable of listening. At least to judge from the post of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport which you find in the image at the top of this article.
We want to believe that it is. Now, however, we await the facts.
