Pattaya, 29th March 2011 [PDN]: At 12 p.m., Mr. Thawat Puekboonnak, the Chairman of Song-Taew Bus Public Service Co-Operation along with 50 other members submitted a petition to Mr. Ronnakij Eakkasing, Deputy Mayor of Pattaya, at Pattaya City Hall.
He complained that there had been too many taxis and motorbike taxis coming from Bangkok and operating illegally in Pattaya. These drivers caused too much troubles as they committed more crimes and fighting. This could affect the image of legal Pattaya taxi drivers. Also tourists could misunderstand and judge the reputation of Pattaya taxi services based on the experience with Bangkok drivers.
