(11/17/2007)

The national news agency Antara reports that Bali's administration is looking for way to reduce the number of motorized vehicles in Bali as a means of easing pollution and growing traffic congestion.

Addressing a plenary session of the Bali Parliament (DPRD) convened to discuss the Island's draft budget for 2008, Governor Made Beratha said, "By controlling the number of cars, we also hope to maintain the road infrastructures and decrease the accident rate."

Higher Road Taxes Ahead

If the government follows through with its plans, road taxes charged in 2008 on local vehicles will be increased in a move to reduce private vehicle ownership.

According to Antara, Bali's government has set a target of Rp. 275.57 billion (US$29.6 million) for vehicle ownership taxes in 2007, an increase of 15% as compared to 2006.
