PHUKET: One person has being arrested for illegally refuelling tour speedboats directly from the Rawai beach road, The Phuket News was told today (Nov 20).

 

However, the news comes as operators turn to using a traditional Phuket ‘songtaew’ bus to haul drums of fuel to the tourist beachfront to continue the practice.

 

Phuket Energy Ministry office Chief Wirot Damkong confirmed to The Phuket News this afternoon that one person has been arrested for illegally refuelling on the Rawai beachfront earlier this month.

Just curious - what would the preferred method of refueling be? Gas station at the end of a pier?

The only way to stop them refueling there would be to stop them doing charter business from the beach and instead use dedicated facilities.

 

(Didn't they remove boats from beaches in Pattaya a while back?)

It just seems to be beyond them to invest in infrastructure to do the job more efficiently.

How can you stop people here making money in a field with potential to become a "boom" business, even with burning charcoal of BBQ vendors right next to it?
