The Badung Police Department has instructed all the local motorbike shops in the Badung area to stop producing loud, customized exhaust systems for their customers.

The Head of the Badung Traffic Police, AKP Aan Saputra confirmed that he began to inspect and instructed all the motorbike shops in the Badung region to stop selling and producing loud exhaust for their customers to create a safer environment in Badung. “The program was initiated to create a safer and more comfortable environment in our area.” AKP Saputra said on Tuesday (8/6).

Authorities from Negara Police Department have detained multiple teenagers and seized 6 motorbikes from street racing on Bali beach.

He also warned the people to stop modifying their motorbikes beyond the standards that have been implemented by the government. “Since the program was started, our officers keep on educating the people, especially those who have been modifying their vehicles as it could potentially disrupt other people and cause problems.” AKP Saputra added.

The officers also put a sticker on each shop as a sign that they have been warned by the police. Saputra reminds the people who have installed the customized exhaust to voluntarily take it off by themselves in order to avoid getting penalized by the police on the road. “I urge people to stop using loud exhaust as they might violate Traffic Constitution Number 22 Year 2009, and could face a consequence of getting their motorbike seized.” AKP Saputra concluded.

In Yogyakarta/Jawa such anti-social behavior is sanctioned with the confiscation of motorcycles and severe penalties for the owners. It would be just as advantageous if there were uniform lighting standards for vehicles, as is customary everywhere in the world. White for the front, red for the back (and yellow / orange for the side). As soon as it gets dark, the streets of Bali turn into horror, resp. battlefields.

That is a great initiative as the noisy motorbikes are a real irritation and spoils the atmosphere in Bali .
