Boy racers of South Pattaya



Do you think that Pattaya City Police might find time to start chasing the ‘Boy Racers’ of South Pattaya?

These visitors from the Middle East race up and down Soi VC and Soi Yensabai 24 hours a day at speeds in excess of 60 kph. There are always two or three persons on each bike and they travel in groups of high-speed bikes at maximum revs!

None of them ever wear crash helmets and they claim that they don’t have to wear them. They also claim that they do not need a driving licence or permit to rent a motorbike in Pattaya.

Sooner or later there will be a fatal accident and the riders involved will simply disappear without trace.

I assume that the same laws apply to visitors as local people in Pattaya?
