Zero tolerance to shooting in the air, fireworks, lanterns at Pattaya Loy Krathong

The Pattaya station chief Pol Col Apichai Krobpetch has warned the public to behave themselves at this year's traditional Loy Krathong celebration - or else.

 

In an interview with Spohon he specified that the shooting of guns into the air was strictly forbidden. 

 

Anyone doing so would be jailed for ten days and fined 5,000 baht. 

 

If their actions caused injury or damage then the penalties would be much worse. 

 

The chief also banned fireworks and lanterns saying that jail and fines awaited those selling and using such items. 

 

Pol Col Apichai also had a warning for youths racing on the roads during the night of the festival.

There's enough ways to get killed here without worrying about getting a stray shot between the lookers or having your flight brought down by a lantern sucked into a jet engine.

Yet all that foam and plastic we see the next morning floating and piled high beside the trash bins is OK....

this have to be illegal all the time noisy bike's racing on streets 

and for fireworks and lantern is it not part of the festival or is it only drinking and driving there is

as always, boneheaded over-the-top regulations when Thailand decides to regulate something.

I wonder what causes this behavior in Thai officials ?

Why aren't they able to issue balanced regulations ??

Chiang Mai has canceled 84 flights and Chiang Rai six during the three-day Loy Krathong festival,

Why not also close all the (police) owned bars, parlours and other adult "entertainment" venues ?

They do it most nights of the week not just festival time.  They wait till Pattaya Plod knock off work then take over the streets; anytime from 4pm during the week and ALL weekend.
