Pattaya Officials Launch Jet Ski Dispute Centers

Jet Ski Dispute Centers

Only in Thailand would city officials side-step local law enforcement departments and open “dispute centers” in their latest move to solve the jet ski scammers problem and the damage they inflict on tourism with bad publicity week after week, month after month, year after year.

Like this grand plan is going to work.

Not a chance when you realise the three newly opened jet ski dispute centers are there to encourage vendors to register their watercraft and obtain insurance. Yes, you read that correctly, encourage. As soon as I read that single word I knew it was game over, a complete waste of time.

Officials said the centers will insure tourists in accordance to the law and prevent them from being held hostage financially over fabricated damage to jet skis they rent. How so, is what I’d like to know but as you might have guessed, the presser didn’t divulge the details and there was no small print to read either.

The aim is to have all jet ski problems handled at the centers instead of taking matters to police, who don’t have the best track record when it comes to resolving the scams.

With high season just around the corner, we are in for another few months of endless stories of tourists being cheated and robbed.

The dispute centers are located on Soi 9, near the Pattaya Police Station, Jomtien Soi 5 near the Surf Kitchen restaurant, and at the Koh Larn district office. They are open from 9am to 6pm.
