Local residents urge authorities to take action after used condoms found scattered along the railroad tracks in Pattaya

Banglamung, Chonburi –

Local residents called for relevant authorities to take action after used condoms were found scattered along the railroad tracks in Banglamung district, Chonburi.

Local reporters arrived near the multipurpose yard of Pattaya Railway Station in the Nong Prue subdistrict of Bang Lamung district on Saturday, June 4th, following local residents’ complaints and discovered a lot of used disposable condoms strewn about, causing displeasing eyesores and fear of infectious diseases during the current reopening period to tourists.

Local witnesses said that there were groups of people who often gathered for inappropriate outdoor sexual activities and littered used condoms and toilet paper on the ground around the railway and rail station.

Banglamung police previously examined the area in last December after the news was wildly spread, so the groups were not seen for a while. But, pieces of litter, condoms, and bags were found again a few months later.

This is not the first time locals complained about the unpleasant behaviour. A similar situation was reported in Pratumnak Hill Park in Banglamung last April. Therefore, they then urged the relevant authorities to investigate and identify the group who gathered for such activities and littered at the public places.
