Video: "Society heads down" buried in phones and heading for oblivion!

Picture: Daily News

 

Footage from a rear facing camera on a car showed the moment when a motorcyclist - looking at his phone and not even wearing a helmet - smashes into the back of the vehicle in front.

 

The rider crashes to the road and is lucky that a following car does not run over him.

 

He picks himself up and survives - this time.

 

The footage was posted on Facebook by Praphop Chungyampin who said that society has their heads buried in their phones. Despite having insurance he now has to waste time for this man to get his car repaired.

 

He added that if his vehicle had been a truck the rider would already be facing up in a coffin.

 

The incident was shared more than 27,000 times and was viewed on some of the most popular sites on Thai social media.

 

The motorcyclist came in for universal criticism for being an idiot and wasting other people's time with his patent lawbreaking.

 

The law allows for a fine of 400 - 1000 baht for phone use while operating a vehicle and 500 baht for not wearing a helmet.

 

No mention was made in the Daily News story of police involvement in this case.

Universal criticism?  Yeah, like he's the only person who's guilty of this. Pot meets kettle.

Yes, rank stupidity. But this obsession with being glued to the mobile phone really is a societal sickness now - it's reached epidemic proportions (and not just in Thailand, but equally in England too, and the West generally).

 

People (especially - but not only - the young) are totally addicted to their mobile toys, and actually get withdrawal symptoms if they are separated from that toy for a short space. Psychologists are now recognising that this truly is a mental illness.

 

You could drop an atom bomb beside one of these fools and they would not even notice it: too busy posting the latest photo of the sandwich which they just ate - which of course all the world is so keen and desperate to see (not)!

we share the roads with these people

Maybe you do, but I go out of my way not to. The smartphone zombies are obnoxious enough on the sidewalks.
