It was quiet in Pattaya for a while, but now illegal motorcycle racers are grunting through the coastal town in the late evenings again

According to a Pattaya Police Commissioner, Colonel Krirkrit Saiwana, foreign motorcyclists have once again met at night this week to drive loudly up and down Soi 18, often rotating around its axis, shitting on passers-by.

A video shared on social media shows a large group of motorcyclists zooming through the area. Sometimes they force other drivers to wait for them to come by, and some drivers shout “Whoo” loudly. A motorcycle taxi driver was so upset that he warned the police about the street racers.

Commissioner Krirkrit said these tourists from the Middle East often come to Pattaya in June and July and often rent motorbikes. He said police are monitoring the situation and have no problem taking legal action against the disturbers.

Police have now warned car and motorcycle rental companies in the Pattaya and surrounding area to have copies of the passports and driver’s licenses of foreigners who rent vehicles from them.

By the way, Pattaya is not the only Thai city that has disrupted cyclists, as your news bearer will know that day in, day out before you rummage through the Thai newspapers. In 2020, the police arrested 6 young racers in the southern province of Songkhla. The perpetrators, who were 15 to 18 years old, were charged with disturbing the peace and their motorcycles were seized.

Thailand’s royal police have set up 1,000 checkpoints across Thailand to ensure young people don’t race at night, it seemed to be going well, but across the country, the noise from the engines is increasing day by day, and then your news bear is not even talking about road safety.
