Rubbernecking – Our Ghoulish Shame

2 May, 2017

Julie Larkman

There is an argument to say that motorists that slow down to have a good look at the choas on the opposite carriage way are selfish and goulish. It is not unusual to sit in a jam for hours on end wondering what the problem is, only to realise there’s no accident at all – just an incident on the other side of the road and a traffic build-up caused by an irritating few slowing down to more easily gaze upon other people’s misery.

For some reason some people even seem to think it’s appropriate to take pictures – which is in extremely bad taste and something that could see you in court.

We bemoan the behaviour all the time, so is it time to take a different perspective on this? I think it sits in the same category as readers of newspapers making moral judgements of those featured in the pages of the paper and behaving all together in a very similar way. I mean footballers have affairs. HOW DARE THEY! Of course thousands of people across the country do the same thing every single day.

So to rubbernecking. This is certainly something that everyone seems to condemn everyone else of. But that simply doesn’t add up and brings to mind the incident of the hypocritical rubbernecker – the one who cries foul about rubbernecking WHILST RUBBERNECKING.

The thing is, bar a priggish few, we all do it. Here goes – I do it – there I’ve said it. I’d like to think that I don’t and I certainly try not to do it. I also think it is wrong to do it, not least of how it affects those behind you.

This is something that we need to take a good long look at and try to imagine something that will change our instinctive behaviours for the better. Any ideas?
