    Fridays Funnies:BMA to prohibit taxi stands on footpaths

    BMA to prohibit taxi stands on footpaths

    As part of its revived efforts to regulate motorcycle taxis, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) will stop allowing taxi stands to operate on footpaths from June.

    The city administration also vowed to crack down on unregistered taxi motorcyclists and taxi-motorcycle stands.

    "We will strictly control the number of taxi motorcyclists and their stands," Deputy Bangkok City Clerk Ratthapol Meethanathavorn said Friday.

    He was speaking after he chaired a meeting on how to eradicate illegal motorcycles. Representatives from the Metropolitan Police Bureau, the LandTransport Department and the BMA's Traffic and Transportation Department.

    I'd propose issuing hunting licenses and allowing the use of high powered rifles from footbridges. It would be very popular with tourists - The 'Bangkok Safari'.

    I used to love Moto-Cyc taxi rides in BKK. I treated them like fairground rides, not taxis. I'd get on and just to be taken on a 5 mile circular route....We'd be going against the traffic, along pavements....bloody great fun.
