Pattaya motorists are urging police to take action against a man captured on video illegally charging people to park their cars near Walking Street.
The unidentified Thai man was indeed waving people into a parking area on the southernmost end of Beach Road Sept. 4 then waiting with his hand out for cash.
Pattaya officials in mid-August warned against parking scammers and this person was no different. Parking is free on Beach Road.
Motorists said they paid the man, even knowing he was a scammer, as they feared he’d attack them or damage their cars.
They want police to patrol the area and crack down on scammers.
