Child death and abuse

Top of BBC’s news coverage today was the “catalogue of maternity failures at Margate Hospital” which led to the death of Harry Richford, just one week old. The coroner ruled it was “wholly avoidable”. The loss of a young life is appalling, especially when it’s avoidable. Yet the failures in the traffic system that cause over 20,000 avoidable deaths and injuries every year, many of them children, don’t get a mention, let alone a headline. As far as I know no coroner has ever pointed the finger at the policymakers who, in my book, are responsible for the untold injustice and harm on our roads that go unquestioned.
