Pattaya, 11 May 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: At 1 p.m., a group of Pattaya taxi drivers filed a lawsuit against Pattaya Co-Op Taxi, according to Police Colonel Nuntawut Suwanlaong (Superintendent of Pattaya Police Department).

Over 100 Pattaya taxi drivers claimed that the Co-Op Taxis, who were mostly registered in Bangkok, physically and verbally abused them as well as taking their customers, Colonel Nuntawut said.

According to a Pattaya-registered taxi driver, the Co-op Taxi group had interfered with her work and threatened her.
In one incident, a Co-op taxi driver pulled in front of her car and told her that she was not allowed to take any passengers, Narumon Kongthai said.

He even came to her house and threatened to harm her if she continued driving, Narumon said adding that she had reported this incident to the police.

Police Colonel Nuntawut stated that this issue had been an ongoing problem between Pattaya and Bangkok registered taxi drivers.

Based on the law, a taxi registered in Bangkok is permitted to take passengers in other provinces provided that there are less than or equal to seven passengers in the car, he said.

However, physical abuse of other taxi fellow is against the law, Colonel Nuntawut continued.

Police Lieutenant Colonel, Rut Pratumkeau said the police team will process the lawsuit against Pattaya Co-op Taxi drivers, while threatening cases will also be investigated
