Friday, 05 October 2012 From Issue Vol. XX No. 40 By  Theerarak Suthathiwong

Even as they work on new regulations and an insurance plan for the jet ski industry, Pattaya officials launched a snap inspection of beachfront vendors, warning them against continuing to cheat tourists.

Deputy Mayor Ronakit Ekasingh, who heads the committee planning the new regulations, escorted police, Marine Department and Bangkok ministry officials on the tour of Pattaya Beach Sept.  27.

Officials inspect and take photos of jet skis along Pattaya Beach in an attempt to end the national embarrassment of jet ski scams. Officials inspect and take photos of jet skis along Pattaya Beach in an attempt to end the national embarrassment of jet ski scams.

Pattaya Police Superintendent Col. Thummanoon Mankhong informed jet ski operators about provisions of the new laws and penalties for breaking them.

Officials also warned vendors of several unregistered or damaged jet skis to pull their boats out of the water until they were brought into compliance. Officials said more inspections and regular patrols were planned on both Pattaya and Jomtien beaches.

    1). Pattaya is going to use a plan designed by
    Phuket who announced it's failure and are
    going to try something else.
    2). The jet ski operators are still laughing
    about the Mayor's visit.
