PATTAYA:--The city has recently put up no parking signs and painted the curbs red and white between Jomtien sois 17 and 19 to keep traffic moving through the narrower sections of Beach Road, but this has local vendors up in arms, claiming the new postings are driving away tourists.

 

Amnuaywit Sompongtham, Chairman of Jomtien Beach Umbrella Operator Club, said he is aware of the situation and has been told tourists are worried about possible fines for parking in the area. But he also complained about large tour buses ignoring the warnings, often parking to drop off and pick up tourists in the prohibited areas.

 

He said the noise and smell of the buses are more likely the culprits driving away tourists from that section of the beach.

 

Amnuaywit said he will talk with city officials in charge and try to rectify the situation.
