Response to “Pattaya Beach Road should be closed” – Jane, you are obviously new to Pattaya. Your suggestions contain only ideas that have been rejected for various reasons. They are far too simplistic while they do not really resolve the issues.
A realistic answer would be to remove ALL parked vehicles, street vendors, motorcycle taxis and motorcycle rentals from the Beach Road. Do not allow tourist buses, baht buses and taxis longer then the absolute minimum time to load and unload passengers and no waiting. No parked vehicles anywhere. No waiting allowed for ANY vehicles.
