Phnom Penh cops plan crackdown on parking

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.

After living for more than a month in the elite section of PP's largest gated community, I've been able to observe the parking habits of the rich and powerful first hand. Apart from me, they all park on the street, due to the high security. Just like everywhere else, they block the narrow streets and park within a few cm's of other vehicles, which also causes problems. I've had my driveway blocked by ignorant pricks, usually high ranking police cars. The culture of impunity, selfishness and complete disregard for the rights of others is just as prevalent as in other parts of the city.

Lovely picture, completely impractical on PP’s narrow streets.

And not a single Khmer understands a yellow box junction, let alone even draw it properly.

An idea that is totally impractical until motorists understand what a pedestrian crossing is and they stop at traffic lights that are red.

Well, they were out in force in 130 and 136 today early in the morning and again late afternoon..on a Sunday! Saw 2 trucks with 7 motos loaded and they raided all the pavement tables and chairs from at least 1 bar on 130.

I saw them raid 1 bar but the truck was also loaded with other tables and chairs, hence I said at least 1 bar
