Bekasi may soon adopt Jakarta’s policy on garage ownership
The Jakarta Post
The Bekasi administration in West Java is mulling over a plan to clone Jakarta’s bylaw on garage ownership, which requires private vehicle owners to park their cars and motorcycles inside a garage, an official has said.
“We are closely observing the policy's implementation in Jakarta. If the result is positive, we’ll follow it,” Bekasi Transportation Agency head Yayan Yuliana said on Monday.
He lauded the concept amid increasing vehicle ownership in the city and said that the administration would prepare a legal umbrella to back the regulation.
Bekasi mayor Rahmat Effendi expressed a similar view, given that the city had contributed the second highest vehicle ownership tax in the province. “The number of vehicles in Bekasi is too high. Applying a one-car one-garage rule could be implemented,” he said as quoted by tempo.co.
He said that the policy should be applied in apartments, the number of which has exponentially grown in the city over the last few years. Most apartments only provide parking facilities to a small proportion of its tenants, he added.
The Jakarta administration has recently announced its plan to reinforce its old policy, which prohibits citizens from owning cars if they do not have a garage to house it. (fac)
