A meter-long section running diagonally across Sukhumvit at Soi 40/2 in the center of Pattaya subsided about two months ago, but neither Pattaya City Hall nor the Provincial Electricity Authority, which did roadwork in the area, took responsibility.

Local motorcycle-taxi driver Mongkol Limcharoen said he has seen several accidents and encourages public servants to do their jobs and fix the street.
