Copy that……..

I recently read that the Chinese have copied the Range Rover. And why not? If you’re going to copy an SUV, then the Range Rover has to be one of the top models. I am just glad that Miss Tim can’t pronounce ‘Range Rover’ – because when she can, I am sure she’ll ask for one.

And it’s not just the cars that the Chinese copy. Bikes, phones, TV’s etc.. If it’s on the market and it’s good – sure as hell they’ll copy it. It’s easier than designing something themselves. If someone else (in the world) has something good – then copy it. It’s a simple concept.

So I ask, why is it other Countries have not jumped on the bandwagon?

No, I am not saying each Country should have its version of a Range Rover, I am saying that if a Country has an efficient system.. then why not copy it?

For example… the traffic light system. It works in the Western world. So wouldn’t a Country… let’s say ‘Thailand’ think about copying it? Maybe then, less people would get into accidents and die.

Each day I see idiots on bikes jump red lights. In front of cops too. The cops pay no attention.
Then there is the helmet law throughout the Western world. That HAS to be a good one to copy? How many people die each year in Thailand due to head injuries?

My point is – why is Thailand so lazy when it comes to laws and safety? It’s not like they have to invent a system. They can pretty much just copy someone else.

  1. No takers on this one. On the copy aspect I think it comes down to the old ‘loss of face’ – the Thais think they can do it better than anyone else.

    The only way to improve the outcome for traffic safety is to get serious on drink driving and speeding – anyone see that happening? Didn’t think so!
