Yesterday, I saw two guys on a motorbike approaching one of those small roadside groups armed with hoses, water guns and buckets of water. One of the group with a bucket stepped further into the road to throw the water and the motorbike veered away straight into the path of an oncoming car on the other side of the road. Injured, but thankfully not killed.
There were 114 deaths in just three days. Is there a file of information on exactly how these accidents are caused?
If that information shows that some accidents are caused in a similar fashion to that I have described, surely it is time to stop these roadside bombardments and restrict water throwing strictly to pedestrians. Or will it just be mai pen rai ... there's nothing we can do?
