On Friday a meeting was held at Pattaya City Hall chaired by the Chief of Banglamung District, to discuss a recent check of Motorbike Taxi Drivers situated along Pattaya Second Road which uncovered many problems.

Khun Sakchai, the District Chief, was joined at the meeting by Army Officials, Pattaya City Hall Officials and Pattaya Police Officers. They were told that there were approximately 55 Motorbike Taxi Drivers working in the area and three major problems were identified.

The first problem related to unlicensed drivers driving motorbikes which featured yellow Taxi license plates which were registered to other people which automatically invalidates all vehicle insurances applying to the Motorbike Taxi.

The inspection team noticed that too many of the taxi ranks in the area were too close to each other and an amalgamation of ranks was needed. In addition, many drivers were found to be aged under 20 which is not permitted under regulations pertaining to Motorbike Taxi Drivers.

The meeting was told that all issues must be dealt with within a period of 30 days.
