Impressive ones also. They got me up in Steung Treng province the other day. Stopped me and immediately showed me the speed cam footage showing me doing 79 in a 60 with exact latitude/longitude coordinates. Zoomed in my license plate and on my face from about 300m away.

The cops are on a tear and the bars are ‘lame’ for not doing MORE to irritate them?

So if a bar follows your suggestion and puts an outside pool table during the crackdown and subsequently gets shut down by the cops, will you pay all those now out of work bar workers?

I don’t understand this thinking.

Yes, clearly you don't understand. Since that wasn't what I was saying. That was a whole lot of assumption on your part. No pool table outside is lame. Which means not having a pool table outside is lame. Nothing more nothing less. Not that they need to defy the order. I made no suggestion, that's just you assuming incorrectly.

And I doubt they would be out of work considering that place is owned by some folks who have 5 other locations within roughly 2 blocks of it. Just to entertain your hypothetical.

With the illegal awnings gone on both 130 and 136, the streets look eerily spacious :bigeyes:

And the traffic cops are coming 3-4 times a day to check on parking infringements.. :clap:

The girls don't have so much shelter now nor places to sit out the front...maybe they will have to spend more time in the bar rather than outside spruiking for customers and getting hungry looking at food carts :Yahoo!:

I feel sorry for them. They have no shelter from the sun that sits over 136 most of the day. Sitting outside in the shade and people watching on 136 and 5 are now gone. Pity...

A group of police were at Larry's taking issue with their awning a short time ago.

FFS... they made them take away the flower pots and trellis, then reduce the patio by 50%. If they remove the awning then the outside area is screwed, it faces east to west with no shade so will be unbearable to sit out there. They have spent good money installing proper fans to make it pleasant to sit out there, once of the few outside places I will sit.

It's just vandalism by morons. I was told it is all about Khmer jealousy hating white man making any money. Those business' are on the floor at the moment and they go around doing this shit?

I have a theory that they are intent to drive all those riverside business into the ground, then the rents will fall along with the value of the buildings. Buy them up, flatten them and then redevelop the whole of the area with 20+ storey apartments and commercial buildings. Everything from street 5 to Riverside under 4 storeys is fair game.
