How come car rental companies don't crowd the streets with all their cars ??? ..............LOL

You see the odd ones, frequently a large jeep for example with a 'For Rent' sign.

Not only the parking areas try and get onto a pedestrian crossing on second road all accsess blocked by motor bikes.

City council and police don't care. A sign that these two identities employ a lot of people but non of them work.

Wonder why they are losing tourists.?

Applying statistical logic, they should park the scooters on the pavement (sidewalk, footpath). This would cause much less inconvenience as nobody uses the pavement, especially the Indians.

 

For the same reasons, trains should be made to stop at road crossings, not cars.:coffee1:

the police currently lack the authority to issue fines to these businesses

Despite these limitations, Pattaya police regularly patrol the area and issue fines to violators.

So they choose which companies to hit; avoiding the police-run firms and thus targeting the competition.

I live in a condo building, very close to a bus station, and our parking lot has turned into a storage lot due to no parking enforcement. It really sucks.

The simple solution would, possibly, be to stop all parking on Beach Road ?  

 

Or even put parking meters along that side of Beach Road.  Make the rental businesses pay to use the public parking spaces.

For the last 22years that I know of  frustrated residents have been complaining  and the Motorbike rentals  have been parking along Beach Rd,  nothing gets done of course due to the Brown Envelopes that keep  the Authorities quiet...I wonder when the Parking Meter idea  on Beach Rd thing will rear its head once again...

Meanwhile, Pattaya police will continue to deploy officers to help alleviate parking congestion for tourists. However, one motorcycle rental business owner, who wished to remain anonymous, told local media that ample parking is available in nearby shopping malls.

Well, go park your motorcycles in shopping malls.

For some reason, every time a few beach chair vendors complain, they rescind restrictions.
