Merit from above

From Thairath, August 23, 2018
Left: Nowadays, driving in Bangkok is very difficult.
Mid: …not only carefully drive by looking left and right, we must also look upwards!
Second speaker: Why do we have to turn our face upwards?
Right: To beware of merit which will fall down.

[Refers to fatal Skytrain accidents in Bangkok. Many areas in Bangkok have massive construction that not only makes the traffic jams worse, but has also resulted in material falling down to on cars.
The cartoon uses the Thai proverb “merit is falling down” meaning receiving unexpected luck. In the cartoon, instead of receiving falling merit, people have to be careful of falling materials from the Skytrain construction.]
