Denpasar Traffic Police have issued 244 automated electronic tickets (ELTE) during the recent “Operasi Keselamatan Agung 2023” law enforcement campaign.
The Public Relations Spokesperson for the Denpasar Police, I Ketut Sukadi, confirmed on Monday, 20 February 2023, that hundreds of motorcyclists and four-wheeled vehicle drivers were ticketed or given verbal warnings during the coordinated operation. The State News Agency Antara reported that 944 drivers were verbally reprimanded, while 357 were ticketed.
The reprimands, tickets, and electronic citations exceeded the targeted totals for “Operasi Keselamatan Agung 2023.” Police targeted 70 electronic moving violations, exceeding that total by 249%, with 244 ELTE citations issued. Meanwhile, the target for verbal reprimands (560) was exceeded by 68%, with 944 roadside scoldings administered. A written traffic ticket target of 225 was surpassed by 59%, with 357 tickets issued.
Commenting on the traffic safety campaign results, Sukadi said: “Our operational targets have been exceeded. Our overall goal was to create a traffic situation that is safe, orderly, and flowing smoothly in areas of Denpasar that are prone to traffic jams, accidents, and moving violations. At the same time, we want to educate drivers on roadway regulations.”
Sukadi reminded the public that although “Operasi Keselamatan Agung 2023” ended on Monday, 20 February 2023, the last day of the safety campaign, the public would be mistaken to think officials are no longer on guard to enforce traffic rules.
The police officer urged the public to remain vigilant and disciplined in following traffic laws.
“Operasi Keselamatan Agung 2023” ran 14 days from 07 February to 20 February 2023.
