I now drive as if Miss Daisy’s in the back, many of these types of accidents are down to speed ... although it’s taken me a while to appreciate that. A sad loss of life.

Of course not, as then it would be classified as fake news. Unless the batteries were flat on the amulet?

No, but the men that survived are on to a winner with the lottery after the day visit to the burning wooded stump

Sad for the violent death.


My wife has an amulet at home to protect the other magic amulet installed in the car.

Is she Irish - to be sure, to be sure?

That was strong among the Irish. My family arrived in the U,S. in 1863 and my grandfather born a few weeks later. My father (1899-1979) and paternal uncles and aunts all carried rosary beads and had St. Christopher medals pinned up in their cars. I was riding in one in 1948 that overturned on a snowy road. Back seat, no seat belt of course. I can remember waking up in a frozen gas station. St. Christopher got a lot of credit for our survival. I still have that pin.

The general mindset towards seatbelts is astonishing - The same mindset and reluctance to use seatbelts in the UK existed 30-40 years or so ago, so I'm not blaming Thailand for having this mindset, but I am blaming Thai Society and Thai Enforcement for is extremely slow 'cultural shift' towards a safer mindset. 

 

I'm astonished at the amount of unsecured children and babies I see in cars, some of them expensive cars, some of them (seemingly) educated people - but dumb at the same time when it comes to the safety of their children. 

 

Each and every time I see my Thai In-laws (a couple of times per week) they arrive in their car without seatbelts on, the seatbelts are done up so they don't 'ding' but the sit on them and don't wear them !!!  I'm at a loss to explain any sense behind this. 

Yet, when we go out in my car my In-laws wear their seat-belts without being asked, ask this it what I expected from the very offset. So, they know they 'should' wear the seatbelt, but choose not to when I'm not around !!! - the mind boggles. 

 

Fortunately the Wife is 100% onside and is equally as critical of those who don't use their seatbelts. 

 

In this case (the main article) a woman tragically lost her life for the simplicity of a worn seatbelt - it's a huge shame and a damning indictment on the Thai Government that more is not done towards road safety awareness and enforcement.
