Pattaya City Hall is once again trying to get drivers to heed pedestrian crossing signals
In a Jan. 3 statement, city hall said:
previous attempt in 2010 was a complete failure as drivers simply refused to stop for red lights.The project officially was declared a failure in February 2011.
Accidents largely are the fault of careless drivers who just blow through the
red lights at crossing signals and don't yield to tourists used to western road regulations that give pedestrians the right of way.
All drivers should respect traffic rules by stopping at traffic signals.
There's no mention of enforcement cameras being installed so it doesn't look as if the
authorities are very geared up to to mak it actually work this time.
