Residents are perplexed by the Jakarta Police’s traffic division statement that listening to music while driving violates traffic laws.
Article 106 of Law No. 22/2009 on traffic and land transportation stipulates that motorists must drive with full concentration.
“Listening to the radio, watching television and smoking cigarettes while driving are violations of the law,” Traffic unit chief Adj. Sr. Comr. Budiyanto said, adding that violators were subject to three months in jail and up to a Rp 750,000 (US$54.5) in fine.
The traffic chief said that they had yet to give tickets to motorists violating the law because the police were disseminating the information to the public.
