The army reminded Pattaya baht bus drivers that it installed bus stops for a reason, and busted drivers ignoring them.

Maj. Paijit Charoenpong of the National Council for Peace and Order’s Bang­lamung division led another check on pickup truck and metered taxis, tour buses and minivans on Beach Road Feb. 22.

The intention was to help ease traffic congestion and let public transport drivers know that the military hasn’t forgotten about the new rules and bus stops it put in place last year, even though months have gone by without any enforcement.

Baht buses, in particular, were caught throughout the day stopping in forbidden areas. Drivers had their licenses confiscated and were told they could retrieve them from the NCPO after performing community service at Photisampan Temple.

Repeat offenders will have their vehicles seized for a week or more with serial offenders seeing their licenses revoked.
