    Pattaya City Council has requested police to be strict on tourist passenger boats traveling between Pattaya and Koh Larn, insisting that all passengers wear life jackets and that boats not be allowed to travel if overloaded after the Chonburi governor stressed the safety of tourists and their property during the New Year holiday period.
    Passenger boat operators who violate the regulations will be severely dealt with.
    Pattaya City Council in cooperation with Pattaya police and tourist police are inspecting the Pattaya to Koh Larn passenger boats after discovering that tourists are not being directed to wear life jackets. During an inspection officers found 150 tourists not wearing life jackets while boat operators claimed that tourists refused to cooperate.
    Mayor Niran Wattanasartsathorn said that from now on, in order to protect tourists and their property, strict inspections of all trips would be carried out by Pattaya Sea Rescue Services and police officers responsible on a daily basis to reduce the risk of death in the event of accidents.
    The inspections, which are the idea of Chonburi Governor Pracha Taerat, were planned as being especially intense during the New Year holiday period.
    Pol Lt Col Wuttichart, superintendent of Pattaya Tourist Police said that boat operators must cooperate. No proceedings will be taken against violators on this occasion, but future violations will be dealt with strictly in accordance with applicable laws.
