Jakarta Police reject administration's garage ownership policy
The Jakarta Post
The Jakarta Police are opposing the Jakarta administration’s plan to obligate car owners, either individual or corporate, to have garages on their property to park their vehicles.
Jakarta Police traffic management director Sr. Comr. Halim Pagarra said the policy was not regulated in related traffic regulations, either Law No. 22/2009 on traffic and transportation or National Police Chief Regulation No. 5/2012 on the vehicle registration.
"To obtain a license, the owner must only have an invoice, a vehicle check and an ID card," he said on Wednesday as quoted by tribunnews.com.
Therefore, the police will not support the policy as it is solely regulated by the 2014 Jakarta Bylaw on transportation, Halim said.
The Jakarta administration recently announced its plan to reinforce this old policy, which prohibits citizens from owning cars if they do not have a garage to house it in. (yon)
