for the people who live in Jakarta, traffic jam is normally things for them.. many ways had been done for reducing the level of traffic jam but none is effective for it.. many meeting had been done, but it`s failed... but according to Director of the Jakarta Police Traffic Commissioner Dwi Sigit Nurmantyas assess the current congestion Jakarta needs serious handling of the various parties. He asserted that the policy infrastructures to parse the bottleneck is the limitation of private vehicles. "If a matter of policy, I tend to reduce the number of vehicles in Jakarta," said Sigit, Monday (10/31/2011) at the Metro Jaya Police Headquarters. Former Police Dirlantas Central Java and Yogyakarta is to say, the proper method to limit the number of vehicles on the highway it needs to be studied carefully by all stakeholders. "Can of the year or limited restrictions (volume machines) CC him. Later we throw these ideas into he-he," said Sigit, who replaced former Dirlantas Jakarta Police, Commissioner Royke Lumowa. According to Sigit, restrictions on private vehicle is necessary because the number of vehicles increasing uncontrollably. He took the example, the flow of traffic in Jakarta last decades very smoothly due to the number of vehicles is not as dense now what do you think about his opinion??

it is not that we don't want to use the public transportation but this transportation is not comfort and not safe at all. many criminal happens in public transportation, so we are afraid of using it

People Indonesia, too embarrassed to ride public transportation. Has a motor, or the car itself, is a pride for the people of Indonesia.

Yes, the same problem is happening in thailand as well, especially in bangkok. There isn't a time nor area where there's no jam. It can be as early as 5-6am in the morning till late evening about 9-10pm. IT has always been the case for the last 5 years i've been there. Right now, i'm no longer taking their public transport on the roads, i've chosen to take the train or MTR instead. It's fast, cheap and convenient. Even though the thai government is taking measures to improve traffic, but cutting down on the number of cars doesn't help matters when it's the layout of their roads that's causing majority of jams.

sanitary, where do you live?? bangkok or singapore?? i think bangkok and jakarta is same crovded...same of the reason is the government is difficult for erasing the increasing number of private vehicle...and the government is difficult for making a secure and comfot public transportation i think.. public transportation now is really unsafe (sometimes) and is not comfort for the passenger..and don`t you ask if the situation is not changed, so the vehicle number is still increased year by year

Here in Western Australia we don’t have such dense population but our traffic has increased dramatically over the last few years too. I guess that it is to be expected everywhere. We’ve had campaigns here encouraging people to use public transport and carpooling. The only other alternative is to build an underground or something like it but that would entail huge funds and disruption.

This action would be equivalent to creating service roads where only vehicles necessary to city functions are permitted on roadways. It may be a bandage or temporary solution to an ongoing problem. The number of vehicles on roads anywhere could be reduced in general if private individuals were not required to commute in the first place. This is could be accomplished by working online at a home location for example?

Why do not we learn from MMDA at Manila. May be many Filipino, think their LRT and MRT system is not good enough. But, the system is already good to me, as Indonesian. Yes, Indonesia need integrated mass public transportation. Just like LRT, MRT, it is train system. And on busy time it can arrive every 2 minutes. The station is integrated with mall or special public place. But, will we, Imdonesian, want to step up to 2nd or 3rd floor to reach the station? In Manila, almost all the stations are upstair or underground. So, it will need some effort. Are we ready for that? No need to look at Japan, they are all completly on different level.
