The Bali Department of Transportation is threatening to soon give strong sanctions against all chauffeured and self-drive rental vehicles operating in Bali's tourism sector without the required licenses and permits.

According to Bisnis Bali, a recent survey conducted by the Bali Transportation Department indicated that as much as 70% of tourism transportation operating in Bali is illegal. Officials estimate as many as 8.631 illegal tourist transport vehicles are currently in operation.

According to the provincial head of the Bali Department of Transportation (Kadishub), Made Santha: "Two months ago we surveyed rental vehicles and tourism transport. That survey showed that 70% of these vehicles are illegal."

According to official data kept by transportation officials, Bali currently has 2,500 legally registered rental vehicles and some 1,200 tourism transport vehicles.

Extrapolating from these figures and based on a survey of vehicles visiting local tourism attractions in Bali, transportation officials estimate 8.631 illegal vehicles regularly travel on Bali's roads.

2011 Ė The Year of Law Enforcement

Bali governor Made Mangku Pastika has made several announcements in recent days declaring that the year 2011 will become the year of "law enforcement" in Bali. Violators of provincial laws, declared Pastika, will no longer give mercy to those who break the law.

A government spokesman said that as a part of this program, illegal tourist vehicles can soon expect no compromise on licensing and operational issues.
