    Starting today, Jakarta has its odd / even license plate scheme in place from 6 AM to 9 PM, every day of the week...
    A couple of thoughts about this... 2 months in prison for a traffic violation?!?!?! Also, while I see the wisdom of applying the odd / even policy to toll roads and Sudirman / MH Thamrin, it seems excessive to apply it to normal surface roads.

    Does anybody know whether these restrictions will remain in place after the end of the Asian Games? I mostly ride a bicycle and rarely need to use those roads in a car, but the application of the policy on weekends is especially annoying.

    There are a few vehicles which are exempted of following the rules set by the regulation. Among them, motorbikes and public transport vehicles (those having a yellow license plate).

    Here is a list of exemptions:

    1. Kendaraan pejabat tinggi Republik Indonesia, seperti kendaraan Presiden, Wakil Presiden, maupun kendaraan ketua lembaga tinggi negara seperti mobil Ketua MPR, DPR, DPD, Mahkamah Agung, Mahkamah Konstitusi, dan Komisi Yudisial.
    2. Kendaraan tamu negara, seperti mobil milik pemimpin negara asing, pejabat dari luar negeri, serta lembaga internasional.
    3. Kendaraan berplat merah atau RI (kendaraan dinas operasional).
    4. Kendaraan atlet Asian Games & kendaraan official dengan stiker khusus Asian Games.
    5. Mobil Ambulans untuk orang sakit/meninggal.
    6. Kendaraan Pemadam Kebakaran.
    7. Kendaraan pertolongan kecelakaan lalu lintas.
    8. Mobil plat kuning (angkutan umum).
    9. Sepeda motor.
    10. Kendaraan khusus yang dipertimbangkan oleh Polri, seperti mobil pengangkut uang antar bank yang diawasi oleh pihak kepolisian.

    This is basically a slap in the face to the middle class - those who can afford one car, and would not be willing to bring the whole family on a single motorcycle. Rich people have two (or more) cars - and can afford to make sure odd & even are covered; less fortunate people only have a motorcycle or take public transportation. The motorcycle exemption seems to be purely out of fear of provoking a riot.

    Not living in JKT, I wasn't interested to search and read the whole reg. However, most of the times regulations stipulates that it is a maximum of X months jail and a maximum Rp X000 fine, meaning that you could end up with 2 months or 2 days or only a suspended sentence of 15 days or Rp 10.000 fine , etc..., if it goes to court.

    In short, it depends on how much you give to your judge. :dead:

    I don’t think the motor bikes would bother if they were included in this nonsense, they don’t both about other rules of the road

    Both Google and Waze have options to set their navigation to avoid odd/even routes, adjustable to your own plate number. Pretty handy I guess.

    For Google:

    1. Open Settings (under the "tri bar" or "hamburger" icon).
    2. Select "Navigation settings".
    3. Choose "Avoid odd-even traffic fines".
    4. Select whether the plate you have is odd or even.

    For Waze:

    1. Open Settings (the settings icon is on top left corner, shaped like a ship's wheel).
    2. Scroll down and select "Navigation".
    3. Scroll down and select "Licence plate restriction".
    4. Input last 2 digits of your license plate.

    Every day of the week ? Surely it's every workday and saturday/sunday are exempt?

    Edit; so apparently it really is EVERY day, including Saturday Sunday.. That's retarded. And with talks of "extending it" if it proves effective?!

    Ok now THAT is idiotic.

    Up next: odd-even policy for shoe size on car free day!

    Pro-tip: wear odd on one foot and even on the other! Problem solved!

    I think the expanded rules, including the Sat/Sun stuff is only for the Asian Games. All of it should be scrapped when Electronic Road Pricing kicks in, so for sure within the next 20 years...

    It seems to have become permanent now. Metro Pondok Indah has been removed and weekends and public holidays are exempt. I'm not sure what happened with the (airport) Grabs with the special stickers on the windscreen.

    And certain areas/streets in south Bali implemented the odd/even system as of yesterday.

    Yes IMF

    This excellent odd/even policy is working very well with a notable reduction in Jakarta's traffic jams.
    Next should be a longer term policy of promoting small EVs then banning all internal combustion engines from all cities.
    Cross country travel should be excepted as EV don't yet have the range.

    In Bali the Jalan Uluwatu route up towards the GWK park is appreciably better with the traffic restrictions. The last few months have seen that upper section of the road impossibly slow and I guess it will get back to that once the restrictions are lifted
