Oh Buddha!: Thais using Holy Water on the roads to stop the carnage

Whoever wrote the title (which is not present in the MCOT version linked to) is undoubtedly culturally insensitive.  I doubt the author would have written "Oh, Mohammed", but seems happy to treat the name of the Lord Buddha disrespectfully.

That's because the OP has confused Buddha with God, a common belief, even by many Buddhists; no-one at all confuses Mohammed with God

I thought until today that Italians are extremely superstitious, today I have to admit that Thai are even more so!

A total of 630,894 had been injured so far this year. 

That's about 1% of the population hurt on the roads ? I knew it was bad but................

Why not simply use some policeman and a speed radar? 

Exactly!  Have an enforced Vehicle Code with actual fines that will mean something...

So they got the monks at the local temple to bless some water and sprayed it on the road.

There really is  no hope.... locals believing spirits are to blame instead of stupidity !

Every country does things that some assert "will make the country look foolish". It rarely does, especially in an age of a 24-hour news cycle, but most people simply don't care about faraway cities in their own country, let alone faraway countries

Now the locals know the road has been blessed it will have the opposite effect in that they think they're protected by Buddha.

Now I know where to sell my magic snake oil.  

 

But in all seriousness, IvorBiggun2 made a comment in post #23 that could be true and cause even more problems. Would wearing an amulet while riding on a "blessed" road give many Thais the feeling of absolute invincibility?
