Soi Kophai residents want traffic light


A collision between an SUV and a motorcycle food cart at the intersection of Soi Khopai and Soi Khopai 4 has South Pattaya residents complaining again about dangerous driving conditions in their neighborhood.

Unreported to police, the ugly accident was captured in a photo posted to social media. No one was killed, but those living near the street’s “green roof crossroads” section say it’s only a matter of time.

The intersection leads to Soi Kophai, Thepprasit Road and Sophon Market. Cars often speed through the crossroads, causing numerous accidents.

Community President Wirat Joyjinda complained the junction has no traffic light. Installation of one would greatly reduce the hazards, he said.
