Jomtien Roundabout at Soi Wat Boon/2nd road junction


To: Pattaya City,

Help dear mayor. First, thanks for this roundabout. It was good idea, and better than lights, but it’s a complete free for all. It seems Thai folks do not know how it is supposed to work. The one in North Pattaya is not a good example


When I am on the roundabout I am not sure they will give way to me, ‘as it happens in the rest of the world’. One day they will run into me, and off course it will be my fault. If I had not come to Thailand they would not have hit me.

More signs, road markings, ‘please stop, give way to traffic on roundabout’, and a raised tarmac at entrance, would be a last resort.
