Car parking along Patong beach

Why are all the parking bays along the Patong beachfront taken up by rental cars and motorbikes? Who allows this to happen? Why are the people renting out the vehicles given this privilege over other people?

The Patong Municipality has marked parking spaces with yellow lines expressly for rental vehicles. The rental vehicle’s owners have to pay a monthly fee to the municipality to park in these spaces. Anyone who parks in a public parking space has to pay five baht an hour for a car or two baht an hour for a bike.
