Pattaya police stepped up traffic enforcement in central Pattaya under a directive from the National Police Agency.
Local officers were told to set up a checkpoint on Soi Yume, which connects north and central Pattaya, ending near the Big C Extra mall. Police, in particular, focused on motorbike drivers not wearing helmets and car motorists turning on their lights at dusk.
Police said they also found the majority of motorcyclists drive without licenses. Offenders were given tickets and charged a fine.
