Denpasar's Top Traffic Cop (Kasat Lantas) Explains Why Enforcing the Law on Convoys of Unregistered, Illegal Big Bikes Might Cause Traffic Accidents.

(4/20/2010)

Beritabali.com reports that Bali police are again pledging they will sweep clean all the unregistered "big" motorcycles traveling on Bali's roadways.

That was the promise made by head of the traffic police division for the Denpasar police, Wahyu Tri Cahyono, who said that two large motorbikes currently being held by his department will remain in custody until the owners are able to present complete registration documents.

"The owners have yet to present legal ownership certificates for a motorized vehicle," said Cahyono.

The leading traffic cop told the press that he has received orders to take firm action against unregistered bikes in Bali. As a result, the traffic police of Denpasar are conducting sweeps against the expensive, large motorbikes. "We are performing road-side sweeps (razia) against big bike in Denpasar," he explained.

Read the Small Print

Cahyono's declaration, however, lacks some degree of both sincerity and firmness of purpose. Apparently only unregistered large motorcycles "discovered" riding independently over the road of Denpasar are targeted for police action. "Those bike traveling alone will be inspected and if their registration is not complete we will confiscate the bikes," he said.

Apparently, unregistered bikes traveling around the island in "official" large convoys, often escorted by police personnel, will be exempt from the tougher certification requirements and the threat of confiscation.

Holding his ground before an incredulous press, Cahyono insisted such concerns were totally irrelevant. The ranking police officer said the sudden stopping of large convoys of big bikes could result in a traffic accident. "If we stop (the bikes) there will be an accident because the big bikes travel quickly which will be dangerous (if they are halted) on the main road, and we'll be blamed for that, too," Cahyono explained.

In the past, Cahyono has publicly expressed his department's reluctance to move against bikes belonging to various "big bike" clubs in Bali who regularly enjoy official police escorts during cross-island tours held to fund community service projects.
