(1/1/2012)

A chain collision accident on the Denpasar-Gilmanuk Road near Kediri, Tabanan on Wednesday, December 28, 2011, has once again underlined the dangers of driving on Bali’s highways and the additional threat to safety posed by unlicensed under-age drivers.

The accident rook place at approximately 5:00 p.m. and involved three trucks and a single Avanza sedan driven by 16-year old I Putu Agung Prama Jipana, a Tabanan high school student.

In the chain collision, Jipana and his 16-year-old companion, I Kadek Agung Prama Wistara, were horrifically pinned inside their crushed vehicle for more than 30 minutes before police and local citizens were able to release the two boys from their mangled vehicle crushed under the read chassis of one of the trucks.

Miraculously, the two boys escaped serious injury in the accident, which demolished their car and closed the busy highway for more than one hour.

The two boys, who are reported by Nusa Bali as cousins, were using the car to purchase textiles form a shop in Kediri. Jipana’s Mother, Ni Ketut Sutriani, told the press, “they went out to buy cloth, but, gosh, they were in a road accident.”

The latest accident immediately brings to mind the tragic death of two 14-year-old Balinese boys who perished while driving at a high rate of speed in the early hours of October 28, 2011.

According to Denpost, there were 428 accidents in Bali in 2011 involving unlicensed under-age people either as drivers or passengers on the back of motorcycles.

Police insist that they are making every effort to reduce the number of children injured or killed on Bali’s roads by giving educational lectures at area schools, community halls (banjar) and visits by school-aged children to police headquarters. Police are also seeking the assistance of schools officials in Bali to  forbid children who are unlicensed and under the age of 17 from bringing motorized vehicles to school.

Police also complain of large groups of under-aged children who organize convoys of motorcycles and cars traveling the island’s road during late evening hours.
