Pattaya-area police seized 30 illegally modified motorbikes in a crackdown on street racing.
About 50 Pattaya, Nongprue and Najomtien officers fanned out from the Jomtien Second Road intersection with Sukhumvit Road just after midnight March 12. A roadblock was put up on Sukhumvit to stop all motorbikes.
Any bike found to have any sort of modified part or missing documents and/or license plate was confiscated and the driver arrested.
The crackdown came after rampant complaints from Jomtien residents about late-night street racing.
