Vehicles in Indonesia

Guess how many cars and motorcycles in Indonesia.... There are 30 cars per 1,000 people and 10,2 people per motorcycles. Indonesia's motorcycle density is number four in Asia. The bike density in Jakarta even reach 2.8 people per unit. Both numbers are based on the industry association respectively.

No wonder the air in Jakarta is so polluted. Hahahaha... there are just so many cars and motorcycles. No wonder that the environmental ministry wants to stop new vehicle sales. Anyway, he must be thinking wildly when he suggested to stop vehicle sales. Hehe.. it's going to stop a bulk of the country's industry if it happened. What the government really need to do is to tidy up the corruption before even doing other things. There are just too many underage drivers with "valid" license and cars giving out black fume. The entire transportation needs an overhaul before other things.

Even highway construction (read: infrastructure) easily spur higher vehicle sales in Indonesia (read: central java highway is coming up). Noone knows how terrible the construction quality will be though :P The country still has a long way to go in everything.
