  1. These buses clog the roads, slows down the traffic to a crawl, make U-turns they can not do in more that 4 moves, blocking traffic as they do this hundreds of meters both directions, park illegally making two lane roads one lane. The police do nothing about it, they can not miss it they drive by this every day/night with their heads in the air
  2. Understand, but we are talking about Thailand. The stations do not have ample parking to store all the bikes and cars they take away. Go look at the station yourself, or ask about where the bike is. They will tell you it is at another location and you have to pay the police and the storage (daily storage fee). Does not matter where in Thailand this happened
  3. every time I have made a police report about something where they need to go talk to some one who has done wrong they write the report, ask for 20 and give you a copy. I say so now what happens? Police say it will cost me more money for them to do something about it, "So you want to pay/loose baht for us to do something?" You have to pay them to do their job. It will cost you more money for them to go talk to the man and sort it out. Up to you what you want to do. I find it deplorable that the police want money to do their job
  4. No they do not. You can't even park in the police station to park to make a complaint, report or pay a fine in Pattaya. You have to park on the street if you can find one. So with all the traffic accidents daily in Pattaya, you think the will take your bike to the police station and store it for you for free? Get real nothing in Thailand is free. Everyone has to get money off you. If they took it to the police station the police could not park their vehicles, which is more important to have than a falong vehicle or bike. They take your bike to a storage lot, then you pay the police to get your vehicle out, pay the storage lot more money to get it out. Good luck trying to find the correct storage lot as there are so many. Nothing about the police is free. You want them to do their job after making a report they want money to do th job they are paid to do. I miss civilization
  5. Yes it has always been stop after sunset, but it never stopped them and it did not stop them again this year. Why does this continue to go on and the BIB is not out on the road to stop it? Stop illegal parking of buses and cars that cause so much traffic problems?
  6. That is an option I did not think about, but looking for something closer in Pattaya hopefully thanks Forkinhades
  7. This is what they want you to believe
  8. I used to go to Bali Hai Pier and buy fresh seafood. It was fresh and alive at a decent price. Now with all the new construction the few times I have gone there the venders are no longer there and their stalls have been torn down. Does anyone know where to buy daily fresh seafood, crabs, shrimp, clams and the likes? You go to the markets and the seafood is old and dead, who knows how long they have had them. Any informative info would be appreciated-thanks
  9. HAHA-never be done-propaganda-usaula liip service-nothing will be resolved over what is a growing problem on Walking Street. Locals who live here go nowhere near there. We know if is nothing but trouble
  10. As I have said for years, BUSES need to get out of Pattaya. Need to give them central parking locations on the DARK SIDE and have the hotels shuttle passengers into Pattaya. buses are are a bain on traffic in Pattaya. It is a mini Bangkok. Does not have the infrastructure to handle the traffic yet they keep building. Buses cause major traffic problems, drive as if they just got behind the wheel of a bus for the first time and drive way too fast. They continually park illegally and the BIB do nothing as far as enforcing the law. I have seen convoys of buses on 3rd Road 18 in one minute. This is a major traffic problem as there are too many buses on the small roads of Pattaya
  11. Bottom line GUNS are illegal in Thailand. Why do so many Thai's have handguns? Need to crack down on this problem or more of this happens. With all the crazy me first Thai men drivers and I do not care about you attitude will only lead to more deaths. The police need to start cracking down on checking Thai driver cars/vans/trucks or what ever in check points instead of trying to get easy cash from farangs for trumped up charges and putting the money in their pockets
  12. What a joke. The Takin's one of the richest families in Thailand and the world want the poor people to give hard earned money that she profits from. why she not give Thai's more than the paltry amount she gives for publicity photo shoots????????????????????????????? What a joke and a same
  13. The family is one of the richest families in the world and she would consider taking money from the poor to pay for her sins. Shameful
  14. Typical mentality, they think this so funny and what they never think about is how dangerous the jet skier's actions are. How many things can go wrong. Only think in the moment and of themselves
  15. Police said they had received information that Dimaukom's group was planning to transport a "huge" amount of methamphetamine — a prohibited and extremely addictive stimulant drug locally known as shabu — from Davao city, Duterte's hometown, to Datu Saudi Ampatuan town Did not say anything about finding the large shipment of Meth they thing the mayor was transporting.
