crackdown on street racing 

In response to the urgent problem of street racing and noise disturbance brought on by Arab tourists in the Soi 18 and Pattaya Second Road areas, Pattaya police launched a comprehensive crackdown on reckless driving and disorderly behavior on August 5.

As a result of their loud vehicles and disruptive behavior, large numbers of Arab tourists have started congregating in South Pattaya’s renowned Soi 18 neighborhood.

Both locals and visitors in the area have experienced discomfort as a result of the constant engine revving and the ensuing cacophony of noise.


The traffic police have already taken action to reduce erratic driving and noise pollution.

They have intensified their efforts by sending more officers to strategic sites where these Arab groups are known to congregate and engage in street racing, though, in response to recent unpleasant episodes.

The traffic department has continuously enforced traffic discipline measures, according to Pol. Lt. Col. Arut Sapanont, chief of the Pattaya City Traffic Police Division.

However, given the unique difficulties presented by the Arab gangs, they have stepped up their presence in key areas to discourage and capture individuals who engage in street racing and causing disruptions.


“Offenders caught participating in illegal street racing and causing noise disturbances will face severe penalties,” police lieutenant colonel Arut warned.

To remedy the offenses, the traffic police will issue two different summonses.

The first summons targets motorists who are observed operating vehicles without legal licenses, without helmets, or with unauthorized modifications, such as loud exhaust pipes.

Those rental companies connected to these unlawful actions will receive a second summons. They run the possibility of having their automobiles impounded and a 2,000 Baht fine. Police confiscated 10 motorcycles during the crackdown, including two that had illegal modifications.
