    Er, what people really need to stay safe on Thai roads is some decent software between their ears and a good dose of fortune. I'd imagine that walking or driving on Thai roads with your eyes glued to you phone would almost guarantee an accident of some sort.

    I thought these guys had cornered the market in road safety apps.

    Trouble is also that many people who have a phone also listen to their earphones nowadays. In busy areas this is plain stupid, and more so when I see folks on bicycles and motorbikes.

    Is instant communication oh-so-important? I think it just shows up those who aren't really busy rather than those that genuinely are engaged in a work conversation.

    Any self respecting person of that ilk wouldn't need to 'show' themselves being on the phone.
