one:    there's certainly not much 'rush' in that and the following hours...

 

As such, I'd be compelled to rename it to 'peak period'

   -  as that would negate the city officials (hopefully tongue in cheek) insinuation, that they are implying there is rapidity in movement of the traffic

In some countries laws are enacted and enforced, with consequences for those who fail to comply. In other countries laws are enacted, not enforced and ignored with impunity. Thailand has a lot of glitter and shine on the outside. Sratch the thin layer of paint, and the real truth becomes obvious.

And in some countries laws are enforced depending on the person

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.

I can see it now, Taxi pulls up to drop off or pick, and Cop walks up and spends 5 minutes ticketing Taxi, that is going to really impede traffic flow...

 

Though they could use cctv and send ticket in the post.

Probably not any more than 5 minutes arguing over the fare because he refused to use the meter. There are things called taxi stands all over the world in cities.

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

IF ENFORCED thats the BIG question....how and will it be ENFORCED.....there are NOT enough coppers TO ENFORCE...

Why not get s a TRAFFIC warden force as like in the UK??

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!

That's country wide 😂

Yes but farangs still endure humiliation, inconvenience, scortching heat, inhale smogs and smell stinky sois by doing visa runs for cheap sex with 30 years younger girls. This is called the lure.
