Pattaya road workers put a new coat of paint on the pavement at a Third Road intersection, hoping to get drivers to stop making illegal turns.

Land Transport Traffic Department Director Pinyasinee Kulla-ekchoscha ordered workers to repaint the faded lines at the 3rd Road intersection with Soi Phettrakul in North Pattaya, which allows drivers shortcuts to both Second Road and Sukhumvit Road.

He said CCTV camera footage shows that drivers simply ignore the fading lines on the road, cutting across traffic to avoid long Third Road traffic lights. Pinyasinee believes if new, thick yellow and white lines are laid down, along with “do not cross” wording, Thai drivers will heed the law.

He urged commuters, yet again, to respect traffic rules, drive on specified routes, and don’t cut across traffic.
