Yeah, when I saw the headline I worried I'd read about the power pole losing control.

Pole didn’t indicate 

Pole wasnt  drunk, pole  was  paying  attention, pole definitely wasnt  gawking at its  phone, pole  had  more brains/sense  than the driver however  pole probably was made with weak watery mix of concrete and  dropped  into a hole without the use of concrete, pole  not  liable not  poles  fault so in that way  similar to the Thai driver.

The  pole rests its  case M'lud.
