Russian woman's parking rant - Pattaya police say she was in the wrong not them
Pattaya traffic cops have responded to a Russian woman after she went online to complain about a parking ticket.
Valeriya Finogenova went on Facebook to say that when she parked in Theppraya Road there was no sign indicating that she could not park there.
But when she came back they had painted the curb red and white and she had been issued with a ticket.
And the paint was still wet!
Thai Rath online said that the Russian provided "evidence" of her claims showing before and after pictures.
But Pattaya police hit back.
Local traffic chief Arut Sathanon said she was not allowed to park there in the first place.
The markings may not have been clear but it was a no parking zone.
Officials were in the area painting all manner of things, said Thai Rath, quoting local officials as saying that the traffic in Pattaya was really bad and they had to make sure that no parking zones were being followed to ensure good traffic flow at the resort.
