"What brainless idiots allowed this?" - lampposts in the middle of the road in Lamphun

Thais seem to regularly crash in to lampposts when they are placed at the side of the road so perhaps a bit of reverse psychology applies here.   

Safety measure. Now the drunk/incapacitated don't have to endanger pedestrians when they have the urge to hit something immobile

I think this is a great idea.... especially in the villages... make them nearly invisible... one at every 10 meters.... 

Have the locals make them...

Have local repair shops ...

 

Can't have enough obstacles in the path of incompetent drivers...

 

Would be a great "catcher" for the drunk and stupid ones...

 

Drive slow, drive safe, happy 2019

OK so the poles are in the middle of the road between road lanes and visible, why do people then drive into them.

99.9% of drivers in a country which shouldn't really need to be named.

I suspect a highly educated and highly paid Government official made the decision, he has since moved on to Policing maybe, same sort of mentality

This is not the first incident of this.  It's happened half of dozen times that I know of.

 

Oh yes, I remember several of these kinds of idiot mistakes.

In Belgium and the Netherlands.

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

I understand it.  I think it’s driven, in part, by some historical culture/societal “norms” as well as educational practices.

 

by that I mean, it is my opinion, that “free thinkers” or those that express opposing/individual option or who question (for good intentions and not purely as a disruptive/obstructionist practice) what is or what’s accepted - aren’t widely produced in this country nor are their behaviors cherished.

 

conformists tend to be what I see in Asia more often.  I don’t mean that a conformist is overtly a bad thing...  but I DO think that in some cases, it good to question “why are we doing this?” versus simply following what was said/given or done in the past.
