The Pattaya police have instructed rented motorcycle operators to thoroughly check the driver's licenses and passports of their Arab clients before allowing them to rent motorbikes.

Following numerous complaints about traffic violations and late-night racing, the police chief held a meeting with rented motorcycle operators, which was also attended by tourist police and immigration service personnel.

In addition to verifying passports and driver's licenses, operators must keep copies of their clients' documents and remind them of the need to adhere to traffic rules and use protective helmets.

According to the police, the number of complaints against Arab tourists is increasing daily. Local residents report that tourists from Kuwait speed on roads, creating extra noise early in the morning that disturbs their sleep, and occasionally block traffic and access to residential premises.

On July 31, around midnight, the Pattaya police conducted a raid on a group of Kuwaitis and confiscated 15 motorcycles for violating traffic regulations.

According to the deputy colonel of the Pattaya tourist police, the police informed the embassies of the countries where the violators came from, and they are required to remind tourists of the need to follow traffic rules in Thailand.
