Just two of Northern Ireland's 90 MLAs responded to a plea for help from motorcycle safety campaigners concerned about potentially deadly barriers on our major roads.
Martyn Boyd of the Motorcycle Action Group UK (MAG) told the Belfast Telegraph that only Alliance's Kellie Armstrong and the Green Party's Rachel Woods took the time to respond and help after being contacted.
Bangor man Martyn (53), a lifelong motorcyclist, is the local face of a UK-wide campaign to phase out a type of central reservation barrier he says poses a lethal threat to riders.
The barriers, which can be seen on roads such as the A1, A26, A8 and A5 here, consist of knee-high steel posts concreted into the ground, with three or four steel cables strung along them for great distances.
"They are designed to stop larger vehicles crossing the central reservation in an accident, but if a motorcyclist were to hit them they could be lethal," he said.
"Fundamentally, they are unsafe for motorbike riders - they're basically cheese-cutters.
"I contacted every MLA seeking their help.
"Only two responded: Kellie Armstrong and Rachel Woods.
"These ladies offered and provided valuable assistance with this issue and facilitated a useful meeting with Department for Infrastructure officials. But only two out of all our MLA's?
"No response received from any other Stormont elected representatives. This tells me and every other motorcyclist in Northern Ireland, whether or not they are a member of MAG, that their MLAs care nothing about the issue. Shame on them, especially as motorcyclists will have helped to elect every single one of them to their well paid public office."
It took a long time to get a proper meeting with Stormont officials, Mr Boyd said.
But it finally happened this month.
Ms Woods said it had been a very positive meeting, and "the Department for Infrastructure now understands the issues the the Motorcycle Action Group were raising".
"Motorcyclists were not even involved in the testing of these barriers. It's bizarre," Ms Woods added. "I was very glad that the DfI finally agreed to a sit-down meeting - albeit online - and it seems that there's been some acceptance on the department's behalf that wire-style crash barriers are hazardous to motorcyclists.
"We need to be looking after everybody that uses our roads - that includes pedestrian, cyclists and motorcyclists.
"And if we're installing things along our roads that aren't safe, well, we need to look at that."
For Martyn and MAG, the campaign continues.
He said he would be writing to the other MLAs to ask why they took no interest in this road safety issue. "And I'll be writing to MPs as well," he added.
