Bogor Police officers installed street signs along a newly opened toll road that links Jl. Raya Ciawi in Bogor with Cigombong in Sukabumi, East Java, on Sunday to prevent drivers from getting lost.

"The signs and directions were installed to give drivers -- especially those heading to Sukabumi from the Jagorawi toll road -- a sense of safety," said Adj. Comr. Haby Ristama from the police's traffic division.

The police are concerned that the public might not be sufficiently familiar with the new Bogor-Ciawi-Sukabumi (abbreviated as Bocimi) toll road, which has been open for trial use since Friday.

The trial operation is aimed at accommodating the outbound and inbound waves of Idul Fitri traffic in the capital this year.

Bogor Police chief Sr. Adj. Comr. Andi Moch Dicky said four-wheeled vehicles were allowed to use the Bocimi toll road free of charge, as the toll road was still in the trial period. 

He urged drivers to keep an eye on the 80-km/h speed limit and to maintain a safe distance from other vehicles. (rfa/wit)
