Pattaya workers repainted pedestrian crossings across Beach Road to prepare for high season.
Crews were seen Sept. 25 slapping a new coat of paint on to the “zebra crossings” following months of rain and use. Numerous people had called the Pattaya Contact Center to complain the lines were hard for motorists to see.
Few drivers have ever actually stopped for pedestrians on Beach Road, even when the traffic lights worked. But city workers remained optimistic, saying they’ll be out next to make repairs on the signals to help high season tourists remain safe.
