The Fools on the Hill

Bangli Officials Claim they are Unable to Stop Illegal Parking Operations at Kintamani Blamed for Traffic Jams

(7/6/2014)

NusaBali reports that illegal fees are being demanded from visitors to the Kintamani volcano that tourism authorities appear helpless to stop.

Visitors to Penelokan, the community that sits on the ridge of the ancient caldera overlooking Mount Batur and Lake Batur, are stopped and required to pay an "official" admission fee levied by the Bangli regency that is supposed to be the only retribution required by tourist visitors.

According to press reports, “no parking” and “no stopping” signs along the busy roadway are ignored, with unlicensed and non-uniformed local parking attendants facilitating parking in these area that often causes traffic congestion and delays.

The parking attendants charge fees but do not issue formal parking tickets to those paying for their services.

It is unclear if these parking attendants are enterprising “free lancers” or have been designated by surrounding villages as a way of gathering revenues.

Bangli officials insist these attendants have not granted permission to operate their illegal parking operations andalso plead that they have been unable to apprehend the perpetrators.

In further defense of their inability to enforce the rules, Bangli officials also claim that the right to take steps against the illegal parking fee collectors rests not with their office but with the police.
