Again a nice example of creating a problem which is in fact not a problem at all

In Jakarta for instance (unlike in Bali and Yogya), you won't find kaki lima's selling beer. However, the traffic and driving style is much more 'out of control' compared to the two other locations. Look at any given crossing and traffic light. Also, there is no discipline and practically no enforcement of wearing helmets and it's quite normal to see 12 to 16 year olds (obviously without a driver license) on a 125 cc motorcycle.

The chances to get caught in an accident are therefore much higher. One consolation; the adversary probably won't be drunk. Just plain stupid.

They'd better do something about that. Or isn't the issue safety related at all? And perhaps religiously inspired?
