Pattaya taxi, van and baht bus drivers, authorised and unauthorised, are fighting over tourists at the Bali Hai pier.
Ruk Siam News says that efforts by the Pattaya City Council to sort out the issue at the south Pattaya port have been ineffectual and that there are often more drivers than passengers vying for the fare.
A meeting was recently held to sort out problems but police and representatives of local taxi groups say there is no enforcement and nothing has improved. A video shows both authorised and unauthorised drivers fighting over passengers.
Some drivers say tourists felt scared, confused and uncomfortable as the factions clash over the fewer tourists using the pier.
