Dozens of illegal vehicles have been fined for carrying passengers without a legal permit.
The Head of Operations from Cekik Vehicle Weighing Unit, Arya, confirmed that 40 illegal vehicles were sanctioned during an operation conducted by authorities.
The operation began on December 23, 2021, anticipating the potential surge of traffic violations during the year-end holidays as domestic tourists increase.
“22 cars that attempted to transport passengers from Denpasar to different destinations in East Java were sanctioned for operating without a special permit from the authority,” Arya said.
They also sanctioned 18 buses that violated the traffic regulations by transporting passengers outside their regular routes.
“Despite having a proper license to operate their vehicles, some buses were also sanctioned for attempting to transport their passengers outside of their regular routes,” Arya concluded.
He also ensured the safety of those vehicles by checking their passengers’ details and their proof of rapid antigen test.
