following complaints about large buses blocking drivers’ vision and causing traffic jams, Pattaya city workers painted traffic lines across the Central-Sukhumvit and North-Sukhumvit roads intersection on Aug. 2 & Aug 5 respectively.
City officials and Surin Yimyam, president of the Soi 5 December Community oversaw the work where red-and-white “no parking” zones were painted where tour buses often park.
The illegally parked coaches cut down on traffic lanes, increased congestion and made it difficult to see for motorists exiting Soi 5 December and Pattaya School No. 5.
North Pattaya also had the same problem with busses and cars parking precariously near the intersection causing dangerous conditions for other drivers.
