Jakarta Skate Park
In a stroke of apparent genius, the Jakarta government planned to deploy in-line skating police officers to react more quickly to the latent traffic jams.Yes, that should work.The announcement was made in June, yet we don’t see any skating policemen yet. Hopefully they have the brains to figure out that these skating policemen will need proper attire as well… well at least lose the hat and replace it with a helmet or something. And wear some body armor!One thing bothers me…. where would they skate? In peak hours, the road is filled with cars, and any empty space not filled with cars, buses and the like is filled with motorcycles (even the pedestrian areas). Maybe the government is developing some sort of top-secret high-tech flying skates… or simply haven’t thought this one through.I recommend you read through the comments to the article!Thanks to Timm for the post.
