Motorcycles and scooters are the most important means of transportation in Indonesia, with approximately 107 million motorcycles on Indonesian roads. To curb the noise of these machines, the city of Jakarta is now imposing driving bans.

 

There are over 18 million registered motorcycles and scooters in Jakarta, a city of 10 million people (as of 2018). The number of cars is comparatively low at 4.1 million. This shows how important the motorized two-wheelers are there. Nevertheless, the city is now imposing driving bans with the background of reducing noise.

Depending on the end number of the license plate, drivers are only allowed to drive on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, or Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. It simply depends on whether the last number on the license plate is even or odd. How the population is supposed to go about their daily business on days when they are not allowed to drive is left open here.

However, anyone caught with the wrong license plate on days when they are not actually allowed to drive must expect severe penalties. In this case, you have to pay the equivalent of 30 euros. Considering the minimum wage of around 224 euros per month, 30 euros is not to be underestimated.
