Invasion of the huge buses



By now, everyone should be familiar with the recent proliferation of enormous white buses that jam almost every main street in Pattaya and take their time backing around to maneuver the sharp turns into the narrow streets that are far too small for them.

Sadly, these mammoth highway buses obstruct traffic, cause delays, scrape other vehicles and are the instigators of numerous accidents.

How did this come to be? I assume that officials were enriched to allow this virtual stomping on the rights of our citizens. These buses belong on the highway, not on our narrow city streets.

The City Council should demand that these bus owners provide mini-buses to deliver passengers to their destinations and park these giant behemoths at the City Limits. If enough complaints are voiced to the Council, maybe steps will be taken to return our residential streets to the people of our city.
