The finishing touches are being applied on enacting legislation that will allow police in Denpasar to haul away and impound illegally parked motor vehicles.
The draft local law has been approved by Indonesia's Ministry of the Interior clearing the way for formal introduction of an enacting decree by Denpasar’s Mayor's office.
Expected to be in effect in less than three months, the legislation will allow police and local traffic officials to impound and haul away illegally parked vehicles to lots under the control of Bali's Transportation Department. Owners of four-wheeled vehicles will be compelled to pay Rp. 250,000 (approximately US$25) for the towing service while vehicles of more than 4 wheels will pay Rp.350,000 (approximately US$35).
In anticipation of the tow-away regime, two towing vehicles are ready for operation. Operational supervision of the vehicles will be a joint responsibility shared among the police, transportation authorities and Denpasar public order officers.
