In a recent sweep by police, 44 vehicles operating in Bali with off-island license plates were detained, ticketed and fined as authorities crack down on “visiting vehicles” permanently based in Bali as a means of increasing revenues from Bali road taxes.
According to NusaBali, the vehicles owners were found guilty of a misdemeanor offense and fined an average Rp. 250,000 (US$28) before the Denpasar District Court.
Provincial rules require vehicles based and operated in Bali for extended periods of time be re-registered and bear police registration plates from a Bali location. Other rules also ban the “importation” of good vehicles from other parts of Indonesia that are more than 5 years old, passenger vehicles more than 7 years old, and busses that are more than 10 years old.
