A taxi driver in Patong released a video clip of him getting a warning from two traffic police not to park in prohibited parking spots.

The video shows the man complaining to the two police officers that there were many cars parked in the same area but none of them were caught by the police, only him who happened to be a taxi driver.

“Police have to take care of people. Police arrest only taxis. They’d be better arresting thieves. I can barely make a living these days and cannot pay for my car anymore. Don’t you care about it,” the taxi barks at police in the video.

At the end, the taxi driver dared the police officers to remove their uniforms and fight with him (NB. Not recommended).

“Take off your uniform, I’m always ready to fight. We can go to the Muay Thai stadium. I’m not scared.”

Police have declined to comment about the video saying that they are not ready to answer. When asked if the taxi driver apologised or not, the police only answer, “I don’t know.”
