The Bitter Truth: Jakartans and Traffic Laws
It is always tempting to break the rules when driving in Jakarta. And it is mostly because other people do it all the time, especially when the men-in-brown, otherwise known as the cops, are not around.
I don’t know what’s wrong, but it’s pretty obvious that people in Jakarta don’t respect those signs placed on the streets. I mean, it is a common sight to see a car parked just below a no-parking sign. The driver must have seen the sign, since it is placed in the most glaringly visible location, but somehow he just doesn’t seem to care.
