No-parking zones painted behind Central Marina

PATTAYA:--Pattaya painted no-parking markers on curbs behind Central Marina shopping mall.

 

Congestion prompted the city to repaint existing red-and-white curbs to reinforce that parking is prohibited. Taxis and vehicles also cannot stop there for drop-offs.

 

If enforced, the no-parking zones should reduce traffic jams during rush hour, city officials said.


Temporary parking is allowed in yellow-and-white areas.

Yes but..supposedly pavements are for pedestrians to walk on ??

 there has been lots of hoo-har recently about motorcycle riding on the pavements after a few people where knocked down and injured.

 

I ( selfishly )  like the easy on pavement parking for bikes  as its convenient for me when I ride...but

 have been violently shoved ( to try and make me fall off )

by some foreign "activist pedestrian" while trying to get out of one of those "on the pavement" motorcycle parking spots outside Kasikorn bank on South Pattaya road..I hope he fell down a pot hole somewhere further down the street. 🤬

  All the major streets should be no parking and the sidewalks improved and widened with shade trees added. The parking now is just filled with taxis, vendors, and motorcycles for rent--little benefit for the majority using the roads and sidewalks.

Oh goodie.  They have those red-strips all around the Jampha Mall in Lamphun and I can only believe that Thais interpret red lines on the curb to mean "Park Here!"  
In Chiang Mai red lines on the curb mean "Park on the sidewalk and not and the street!"  
That must be correct as you never see a security guard at Jampha or a cop in Chiang Mai do anything other than to let things go.  Park where you want.

How about doing the same along Klang and North Rd, at the moment double parking seems to be quite acceptable, a few hundred vehicles can be delayed and forced into the wrong lanes by someone buying noodles on main roads here!

Don't worry they are for foreigners only, Thais ignore them.

As has been pointed out earlier until Pattayas get a police force nothing will change.  How many illegal taximeter drivers have Pattaya Plod arrested?
