Some 26,055 motorists were ticketed for violating the odd-even license plate traffic policy implemented to improve traffic during the 2018 Asian Games, which were held from Aug. 18 and ended on Sunday, police said.

“So far, 26,055 people have received traffic violation tickets,” the law enforcement division head  of the Jakarta Police's traffic unit Adj. Sr. Comr. Budiyanto said on Monday as reported by tribunnews.com.

The policy, which was based on Gubernatorial Regulation No. 77/2018 on the implementation of the odd-even traffic policy during the Asian Games, regulated that cars whose license plate ends in an odd number may only travel in certain zones on odd-numbered dates and those whose license plate ends in an even number may only travel on even dates.

Budiyanto said that from Aug. 1 to Aug. 31, of the 26,055 ticketed motorists, 13,441 had their drivers licenses (SIM) confiscated, and 12,614 vehicle registration documents (STNK) were also confiscated for breaking the odd-even rule.

The Jakarta administration decided on Friday to extend the odd-even policy until the end of the 2018 Asian Para Games, which will be held from Oct. 6 to 13. There will be no pause of the ongoing odd-even policy between the Asian Games and the Para Games.

The new extended policy will exclude Jl. Metro Pondok Indah in South Jakarta because there is no Para Games venue in the area. On Jl. Benyamin Sueb, the policy will only be implemented during the Para Games to ensure mobility around the athletes village in Kemayoran, Central Jakarta. (ami)
