PATTAYA: Many bars, clubs and restaurants up and down Walking Street and surrounding sub sois have been issued a seven day notice to rectify signs and billboards deemed illegal and a fire risk.

The inspection was led by Mr Anuphong Phutthanawarat, head of the NCPO in Pattaya, following complaints that many venues were breaking the law in a bid to have their signage stand out from the competition.

City officials who joined the inspection agreed that many of the signs and billboards were not only breaking the law but also causing a fire hazard as they were mounted lower than the permitted height of five meters.

Mr Anuphong said that many signs had been installed over the road some were too low which could prevent emergency services accessing the street.

City officials took photos and issued operators who had broken the law a 7 day notice to rectify the problem and told officials would return in one week to check the work had been carried out.
