Motorbike rules on the change in Jakarta


 The city officals are 'cracking down' on motorbike riders amd trying to enforce safety and well maintained bikes. This is a huge step forward and sadly to use another idiom another bridge too far as the motorbike is the most common form of transport and used by rich and poor alike. 
Most bikes are well kept but there are those that dont have helmets, lights and carry a family of 4 on it. The police dont really up hold the law as they know it is almost impossible to enforce as it effects so many poeple.
However I am seeing more bikes with lights on in the day.
In time maybe people will change. But in the housing areas and slums, who can say.
