I want my sidewalk back.

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

I have not got sick from meat from Phsar Chas but I buy it relatively early so it hasn't been sitting out there all morning in 30C. As for restaurants I would hope they buy early and stick it in their fridges.
What?? Next you'll be wanting them to wash their hands after going to the toilet / squishing zits / blowing their nose into their hand . . . .

Expects inspected the roads to reclaim sidewalks. Facebook
The Kandal Provincial Public Works and Transport Department will conduct a campaign to reclaim public roadsides and expand roads in the province to 15 metres from the road median from November 14.

The department’s director Moeng Youleng said those with houses or in the process of constructing structures on National Roads 1, 2, 5, 6, 14, 20B, 21, 21A, 21B, 34, 110 and 151A must vacate the area within 15 metres from the median.

Ministry of Public Works and Transport spokesman Vasim Sorya said the department aims to reclaim public roads from vendors and others who use the roadsides for personal use.

This needs to be addressed because it is a safety issue. When people are forced to walk on the road, where cars and motorbikes are flying past them, there is a real chance of being hit.

Cambodians want more tourists in Cambodia, as tourists bring in money. Whether tourists have a good experience, or an unpleasant experience, is determined by a lot of little things. This is one thing which most tourists dont like, and makes Cambodia a less popular tourist destination.

The city needs public parking garages to make more parking space, just like any other big city. When businessmen figure they can make more money in building full parking garages vs. empty high rise apartments, the use of the sidewalk to park will continue.

That demolition site on the corner of 19 and 118 is reputedly to be a carpark, and there were plans to build an underground one under the Freedom Park/Old Market Park as well, if that's still going ahead.

Not that either is going to make a jot of difference to people running their businesses and parking on the footpath anywhere, let's face it.
No matter how much it rains, the dirt never washes away.

How will Khmer get from the carpark to the shops?
They surely wouldn't be caught walking.

It made a big difference when they moved all those cars for sale away from the Freedom Park. Only reason to put a car park there is because everyone and their mom who lives there sells cars.

One of the biggest complaints in most UK cities (London in particular) is the strict enforcement of parking restrictions, the overzealous - and often hated - traffic wardens who enforce them and the sheer amount of money local councils make in parking fines.

It's not until you come here that you realise the need for this kind of approach.
