Shops block off parking spaces



Re: Parking violations ignored on Soi Post Office (PM Friday, 02 January 2015) – It’s not just Soi Post Office that this occurs. All over Pattaya and Jomtien shops block off parking spaces for themselves. In Jomtien (Soi 7 especially) some bars have taken over the parking in front of their premises and set up their tables and chairs for their customers. About every 2 years, some big-brass police come from Chonburi or Bangkok and kick the bar’s tables and chairs off the street parking space, but after a week or so the bars just take it over again for their own use. Many premises at the beach end of Jomtien Soi 7 have also been extended out into the street space so there is just no parking possible there.
