PATTAYA – Jomtien municipal officers literally clamped down on motorists illegally parking in handicapped spaces.

Somchai Inruang led officers in clamping wheels and ticketing cars parked in disabled-parking zones along Jomtien Beach Road near Soi 7 March 27.

The move comes after numerous places of able-bodied motorists taking up spaces reserved for the disabled as well as blocking wheelchair ramps.

Some car owners were given warnings, but those leaving their cars in restricted areas for a long time will eventually return to find their wheels locked.
