Jakarta saw a 40 percent drop in traffic violations on the fifth day of the Electronic Traffic Law Enforcement (E-TLE) system trial run, according to police.
“The number declined from 93 violations to 53,” Jakarta Police traffic unit chief Sr. Comr. Yusuf said as quoted by kompas.com on Saturday.
Among the 53 violations, Yusuf added, 20 were committed by private vehicles (with black license plates), three by public vehicles, or yellow license plate, four by red license plates or official-owned vehicles, seven by military and police vehicles and two from non-Jakarta private vehicles.
The police failed to identify the vehicles of two other violators because their license plate numbers had been covered by other vehicles behind them. The other 15 were declared violations by the traffic police in charge.
The E-TLE trial run started on Oct. 1 and covers Jl. Sudirman and Jl. MH Thamrin in Central Jakarta. (vla)
