Orderly parking does not compute at Tukcom


One of the biggest complaints about South Pattaya’s Tukcom electronics mall is the lack of parking. The severity of the problem is obvious on small streets surrounding the South Road store.

The shop owners and their customers travel there by car or motorbike every day. The small parking lot fills quickly, leaving bikes parked wherever they can on the street.

Some people just double park along both sides of the street. Many of the shop owners extend their stores out to the sidewalk, resulting in less room to walk and, additionally, many vehicles are parked in front of the shops creating a very busy area.

Where are the Pattaya municipal officials who are supposed to control parking? Perhaps they’re inside picking up a bootleg copy of the Keystone Cops.
