A cop collars a motorcycle cabby for attempting to obtain an inflated fare for the flight and after that threatening the travelers with a knife when they declined to pay.

A violent and extortionate Pattaya motorcycle-taxi motorist was detained after threatening 2 immigrants over 40 baht.

Worapol Naroj, a chauffeur from the Pattaya Night Bazar stand, was nabbed April 13 on 2nd Roadway at Soi 6/1 after passersby intervened in the tried attack.

Alexander Somsan, 31, stated he saw Worapol pull a knife while yelling at travelers. Cops were called and the conflict ended without additional violence.

Cops stated Worapol had actually gotten the 2 immigrants on Central Roadway and took them to Soi 6, a range that, by law, need to cost just 15 baht an individual. Rather, Worapol charged each traveler 80 baht.

The immigrants misinterpreted and believed the overall fare for the 2 was 80 baht and, appropriately, declined to send to the rate gouging.
Pattaya and Chonburi transportation authorities have actually come a cropper to manage motorcycle-taxi rates, without any motorists charging the lawfully set fares and authorities and transportation authorities not doing anything to avoid the rate gouging.

The victim shows how he was threatened with a knife after declining to pay the high rate required by the motorcycle cabby.
