The tragic death of two 14-year-old Balinese boys, Budi Artawan (“Kevin”) and Gede Ogy Surya Nugraha, who were killed while driving at a high rate of speed in the early hours of October 28, 2011, has prompted Bali’s Chief of Police, General Totoy Herawan Indra, to issue instructions to his corps of officers to take firm steps against under-age vehicle operators.

As reported by Bali Post, General Totoy cited the death of the two boys and the serious injuries suffered by a third 14-year-old, Komang Aditya, as an expensive lesson for all concerned, including both the police and the parents of the dead boys. Tototy said: “Psychologically, teenagers are still developing, They still need supervision from teachers, neighbors and their parents.”

Bali’s top-ranking policeman said teachers and parents must provide guidance to children to avoid negative and dangerous activities. Adults need to be aware of what the children in their charge are doing, with whom they are doing it and where they are at all times. Adding, “they have to be supervised in the extreme.”

The police general warned that under-aged drivers will face law enforcement without favor or pardon, regardless of their position in the community. “There is no reason (for this), I order all the police officers in Bali to take firm action against violators,” said Totoy. He called for officers to arrest those involved and seize the vehicles.
