Police Crackdown On Motorbike Racers in Pattaya, Pledge to Resolve Growing Issues

Pattaya –

Police cracked down on motorbike racers in the Pattaya area last night and pledged to resolve growing issues with racing in the area.

A team of police led by the Chonburi Police Provincial Deputy Commander Colonel Patikorn Sornchai and the Pattaya City Police set up a checkpoint near the intersection of the Jomtien Second Road and Sukhumvit Road in Nongprue last night (March 11th).

Colonel Patikorn told the Pattaya News that many motorbike racers like to gather in this area. Residents have complained that they are causing a public nuisance.

Many mostly teenagers’ motorbikes were stopped for checks. More than 30 of them were found with modified motorbikes with loud exhaust pipes, no license plates, and no valid vehicle documents. The motorbikes were impounded and legal action is being taken against the drivers and/or their legal guardians if it applies.
