(1/26/2014)

Frustrated by the failure of past efforts to dissuade Junior High School students from illegally driving motorcycles to and from school, the Bali police in Gianyar set up roadblocks on Saturday, January 18, 2104, that resulted in the seizure of 15 vehicles.

DenPost quotes the head of traffic control from the Gianyar Police District, Ni Luh Putu Sugiartini, who said: "We tried a number of ways to make the students aware that they should not be driving motorbikes. Recently there have been accidents involving students."

The legal age for obtaining a motorcycle license in Indonesia is 17-years, yet many Junior High School students below that age bring motorcycles to and from school. One major junior high school in Denpasar is surrounded every day by hundreds of motorcycles when classes are in session.

The roadblock conducted in Gianyar involved tens of traffic officers and ran for one hour from 6:30 am on the Saturday morning. The students stopped by police were cited by police for the underage operation of a motorcycle and for failure to wear crash helmets.

In what is planned as the first in a series of roadblock, police seized the illegally driven motorcycles and summoned parents had to pledge to stop their children from future violations of the law before the vehicles were returned to their possession.

Ni Luh Putu Sugiartini, speaking on behalf of the police, called on parents to prevent their children from operating motorcycles before they are legally licensed to do so, saying underage children lack the emotional stability to operate such machinery.
