3-in-1 Traffic policy to be scrapped
The temporarily suspended 3-in-1 system in Jakarta will be permanently scrapped from next week after failing to ease traffic congestion and instead leading to rampant child exploitation. The finalization comes after a four-week suspension of the system — which bars private vehicles carrying less than three passengers from entering a number of main thoroughfares — ends this weekend. The scrapping is part of a larger plan to transition the city towards the long-awaited electronic road price (ERP) scheme. The technology and infrastructure for ERP is available but regulations and payment procedures are still being prepared by the administration.
