The Bali Police have announced that the roadside sale of fireworks will not be allowed in the period leading up to the Christmas and New Years period.
Beritabali.com reports that police plan to prosecute anyone caught selling fireworks for misuse of such materials, insisting that the importation and distribution of fireworks in Indonesia can only be done with formal permission from the police.
Sindar Sinaga of the Bali Police told the press on December 10, 2012, that stores selling fireworks must have a letter of appointment from an approved distributor and must also be in possession of a business operating license (SIUP).
The public is also being reminded to ask for a formal receipt when buying fireworks in order that police can determine that personal caches of pyrotechnics are legally held.
Sindar Sinaga also emphasized that fireworks for sales to the public must be shorter than 2 inches.
Every change of year sees horrific injuries treated at area hospitals caused by the illegal or imprudent use of fireworks.
