(7/19/2013)

Surprising no one who travels Bali’s roadways, the Bali traffic police report that traveling by any form of motorized vehicle on the Island is dangerous. In fact, during the first six months of 2013, a total of 1,168 accidents were recorded in the province.

From that total, 166 fatalities and property damage amounting to Rp. 1.9 billion (US$190,000) were recorded.

The highest number of accidents were recorded by the Police precincts in Denpasar with 306 accidents; followed by Buleleng in North Bali with 275 accidents; and Tabanan with 126 accidents.

Quoted by Seputarbali.com, the head of the traffic section for the Denpasar Police, Dedy Udayana, said the high number of accidents in Denpasar was due to many causes, including congested roads and bad driving habits.

In an effort to reduce the high rate of traffic accidents Dedy explained how “Operation Patuh” was currently underway to bring a stricter level of enforcement against those breaking traffic regulations. “We will take steps against violators beginning from those with incomplete documentation to other areas such as people driving without a rear-view mirror. We’ll also enforce other regulations,” emphasized Dedy.

The Capital’s top traffic policeman also concedes that road conditions play a role in the high level of accidents in his jurisdiction.

Police acknowledge the high level of accidents in the Tabanan area of Bali is occasion by over-loaded trucks, resulting in frequent rollover incidents and an accompanying loss of life.

Police Commission Beno Lauhenapessy, who heads the Province’s Traffic Police Division, said the simplest rules that must be obeyed are the use of standardize crash helmets for motorcyclists and seat belts for motor vehicle passengers.
