Back To The Drawing Board
I mentioned on this article about some sort of gate contraption that blocks the busway lane to vehicles other than the Transjakarta. Apparently it still doesn’t work, although it doesn’t have anything to do with the electronics this time. Motorcycle drivers still attempt to enter the busway lane, even with the large gate and signs indicating that they should not. I mean, look at the picture in the article, you can’t miss it even if you tried. Or maybe many Jakartan drivers do not know the meaning of this sign? I see the verboten sign ignored so often that it makes me wonder.Is it a problem of communication, or a problem of ignorance? And thus, these motorcycle drivers push to do anything to get where they’re going faster, so they have more time to sit in the pantry and smoke some cigarettes.Thanks to Aulia for pointing out the article.
