Pattaya crackdown on illegal motorcycle parking: Positive response

Pattaya crackdown on illegal motorcycle parking: Positive responseLegacy

Pattaya City’s new campaign against the chaos of illegally parked motorcycles, launched yesterday, July 9, was met with a positive response. Targeting the bustling area outside Terminal 21 shopping mall on North Pattaya Road, the initiative aims to reclaim the sidewalks from rogue drivers, urging the public to cooperate.

“This campaign is excellent! It would be even better if enforced daily.”

“Sidewalks are for pedestrians. Permanent signs and hefty fines are essential to curb this indiscipline.”

Specific areas, however, are still battling the parking menace. Soi Arunotai on Central Pattaya Road sees cars parked on both sides, causing chaos for drivers and pedestrians alike. The call for action extends to nighttime inspections, as baht buses, taxis, and motorcycles often flout the rules after dark.

Hotspots like the Chaimongkol Temple intersection and the beachfront road are also under scrutiny. Motorcycle rental shops, guilty of parking in no-parking zones, leave tourists struggling to find a spot near Pattaya Beach. The U-turn area in front of the Rung Rueang Pattaya bus station on North Pattaya Road is another target for reclaiming.

Residents are demanding stricter enforcement against baht buses notorious for parking violations. Areas like Photisarn Road and Naklua market are also in dire need of inspections, reported Pattaya Mail.

“The number of violations is ridiculous. It’s high time something was done.”

 

ORIGINAL STORY: Pattaya’s new campaign puts the brakes on illegal bike parking

Pattaya City’s latest public awareness campaign, launched yesterday outside Terminal 21, aimed to curb the rampant issue of motorcycles parking on footpaths. However, the initiative has sparked mixed reactions from residents and visitors, revealing deeper frustrations over the city’s parking infrastructure.

The campaign, spearheaded by the Policy and Planning Division of the Pattaya City Office, focused on educating the public about the prohibition of sidewalk parking and encouraging the use of designated parking areas within Terminal 21. Despite these efforts, feedback from the community has highlighted severe inadequacies in the existing parking facilities.

One resident suggested that repurposing existing areas could help meet the growing demand.

“Every time I visit, the motorcycle parking is full. There are more motorcycles than cars. Additional parking spaces should be created.”

While acknowledging the campaign’s intentions, many citizens stressed the necessity of consistent enforcement to mitigate inconvenience effectively.

“What you’re doing is commendable, but enforcement must be strict and predictable to minimise disruption. Consistency is crucial.”

The call for citywide enforcement of traffic regulations resonated strongly.

“Traffic violations are rampant across the city. This initiative should extend beyond a single location to encompass all of Pattaya.”

Specific areas like Soi Buakhao have been identified as persistent trouble spots, despite intermittent crackdowns.

“Enforcement on Soi Buakhao is sporadic. Violations resume shortly after each enforcement phase.”

City officials acknowledged these shortcomings and reaffirmed their commitment to improving both enforcement strategies and parking infrastructure, reported Pattaya Mail.

“We are dedicated to enhancing our enforcement measures and expanding parking facilities to better serve residents and visitors.”
