Russian woman's parking rant - Pattaya police say she was in the wrong not them

Recommended Posts

How much is the fine? Pay it move on both figuratively and literally. 

Before people say it is the principle of the thing, it’s not just another tight arse foreigner not wanting to part with their cash thinking they are smarter than the Thais. 

In short don’t like how things are fine in Thailand f u c k back of to that depressing place called Russia,

Can you supply the references to where this has happened in the UK please?

Swindon , Hartlepool and Llandudno are among three authorities that have pulled similar and check on the 'net where others can be found ..

Good to see that the authorities are re-painting no parking zones, including zebra crossing. 

Sour grapes by the lady!

I wonder if they will bother to go up to Thepprasit and book all the idiots who double park and cause havoc on that road ?

There are no parking zones all over the place, they have a relatively small sign when you enter the zone then no more warnings in the form of either signs or road markings. If a large vehicle obstructs your view (of said sign) as you enter the zone it's easy to come unstuck - as I did in Upminster about twenty five years ago.

 

I just remembered, I once parked in a car park at Milton Keynes railway station, carefully checking the signs before I headed to the staion. This was on a weekend and the signs said fees applay Monday to Friday. When I returned to my car there was a ticket on every car and the signs had been changed to show charging seven days a week. I didn't pay and didn't hear any more from them.

Zebra crossing death traps in Thailand
totally and absolutely not fit for purpose here...they only give pedestrians a very dangerous false sense of security.

Are you kidding me?  In Buriram Thais just stop in the middle of the main road if they want to go into a shop. If you honk your horn when they are doing so you get a look of disbelief!  Idiots!

That is how social media works this days. I actually know the woman, she is real estate owner/agent.

 

she did not really rant, just made a post , post got shared 1500 times and here is the end result .

 

moral of the story is he careful what you post on your FB as it may come back to bite you on the backside 😉

I think it’s 500-1000. She said immidiately after painting finished, cops showed up issuing tickets. Paint has not even dried yet

This happened to a mate of mine who parked outside a doctor's surgery in Stoke. When he came out they had painted double yellow lines along the road (apart from where his car was parked, of course) and he had a parking ticket. He was incensed.

He took the matter to magistrate's court and the verdict was in his favour.
