Clear the cars, not the chairs from riverside

Dear Editor,

You

reported in the Monday  edition of the Post that the police did a

wonderfully efficient job of clearing Sisowath Quay of inoffensive

tables and chairs placed outside the various cafes and restaurants.

Unfortunately,

they ignored the many offensive cars and motorbikes that every day

block the passage of pedestrians, forcing them into the road where they

face instant oblivion from passing traffic.

In these times of

desperate global recession, the removal of selfishly-parked cars and

motorbikes - not tables and chairs - would do much to make Phnom Penh

far more appealing to the world's fast-vanishing tourists.
