New Walking Street boss demands city action on parking, transvestite pickpockets

Friday, 23 May 2014 From Issue Vol. XXII No. 21 By  Urasin Khantaraphan

Walking Street’s new community president is targeting drivers and street vendors clogging up the nightlife district’s side streets.

At a May 15 community meeting with Deputy Mayor Ronakit Ekasingh, recently elected Methkrit Suntros requested the city install “no parking” signs to better explain Waking Street’s alternate-side parking rules and better patrol sois 14-16 to prohibit illegal and double parking, which slows traffic and blocks access by emergency vehicles.

Methkrit said such problems have been chronic and city hall’s failure to enact concrete guidelines and enforce traffic laws has continually irritated business owners.

The community president also demanded that the city better patrol their much-touted “safety zone” with actual police officers - rather than volunteers - so that transvestite pickpockets stop victimizing tourists.

The deputy mayor pledged to have parking signs installed immediately and said he’d communicate other concerns back to relevant officers at city hall.
