They said losing their jackets for three years was unfair. 

Yesterday the PR department of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration went to gauge opinion on the streets at four ranks in the upper Sukhumvit Road area of the capital. 

The places surveyed included two in Soi Asoke (Soi 21), Soi 18 and Soi 22. 

Spokesman Pongsakorn Kwanmuang said that riders agreed with the proposed regulations saying it was a positive step forward. 

But they disagreed with losing jackets for three years saying it was too severe a penalty. They asked if it was possible to tone down the penalties. 

Their comments will be taken forward to a meeting on October 31st.
