Toothless junta! Speedboats openly flouting law in Pattaya and officials do nothing

Brown envelopes have changed hands?

1st question. Well just consider who appointed the Mayor?

Next, consider 1000 baht per boat per day as ensuring these activities continue is a nice earner for some.

So who tells the police to enforce the law ? Who advises the mayor how to react.

Go back to question 1 and repeat.

They posed the question: There was an initial effect when changes were promised - so why has the situation now deteriorated to being just as bad as before?

 

Because this is Thailand. And that's the way they roll.... on almost every topic under the sun.

You should go higher up the chain.

Maybe the buck stops with the  "" government installed local mayor"".

 

Not much point in going higher, the one at the top is probably as useless as the person who "installed" him. 

Mayor Sonthaya Khunpluem is a mate of the PM and was politically appointed to garner votes and support prior to the election. Nothing to do with the betterment of Pattaya.

Previously Sonthaya was political adviser in the office of the PM. He is patriarch of a wealthy political clan.  

This might partly explain why Pattaya is going to the dogs so far as pollution, buses and speedboats is concerned.

They had nothing but contempt for the government installed local mayor especially when it came to regulating the activity of speedboats on the beach. 

While said local mayor is, instead, focussed with zeal and gusto on regulating the activities of those who, in his eyes, are committing really serious crimes on the beach like placing a cigarette between their lips and then applying a flame to it...

Well, I quess the bali hai port can not digest so much boats and these boats i quess are too important for the tourism so here we are for now.. We are not living in western country where temporary situations goes orderly manner by written temporary orders and Laws. Thais just ignore the orders until there is a solution..

When we used it 2 months ago, the ferry ticket office was empty and shut down and only touts were about there!! 😠😠😠

Hardly fair to criticize the Junta, they have their hands full fixing the elections and solving the killer smog problem in the north.

yeah i wonder why he quoted only seven days for smog but needed a few months to count ballots....

What Junta did was cleaning the vendors and killing fun. Now the beach is a disgrace with hundreds of boats roaming around and polluting the water.

The answer is incredibly simple.

Because there is a total lack of respect for the law, combined with those who are supposed to enforce it, will look the other way when given a bribe. Until such time (which is unlikely to be anytime soon round here), as Thailand has real law enforcement and the penalties are given out continuously, operators will continue to take the piss and pick up from wherever they think most advantageous.

 

it will snow prior to that happening

Yes...same same and its been going on for a year since they are all supposed to be leaving from Bali Hai Peir.

 

Same with the motorbike rentals at Soi 7-8 on Beach Road and at the 13 Sois.......WHY are they allowed to take EVERY PARKING SPOT on Beach Road and at Soi 13, 13-1 and 13-2 on Beach Road and the whole lower end of the Soi..........been like that for at least 10 yrs that I know of.

Bali Hai pier cannot cope with the number of boats, busses and tourists.

The boat operators took a stand, deciding to run their businesses how they want to, instead if how an unelected, appointed body of officials told them to. Good for them.
