To discourage people from patronising roadside fried-banana vendors, whose presence is being blamed for traffic jams, Nanglueng Police Station said those caught buying the snacks will be fined Bt500 from today.



This decision was made at a recent meeting of district officials, police and the owners of the six licensed fried-banana stalls in the area. People are urged to take pictures of those seen illicitly buying or selling the snacks and mail it to pom_prap@hotmail.com or Pom Prap District Office’s Facebook page. The pictures will be used as evidence so that the offenders can be slapped with a fine.

Owners of licensed stalls must submit a list of authorised vendors, complete with photographs, to the district office.
