The odd-even system designed to reduce congestion in Bali around tourist destinations will be in place as long as PPKM is extended.
According to the Head of Traffic of the Denpasar Police Kompol, Ni Putu Utariani, the odd-even locations in Bali will be applied in a number of tourist destinations (DTW) and will take effect from 25th September.
Head of the Bali Provincial Transportation Service IGW Samsi Gunarta said that the odd-even policy is a way to control and regulate fluctuations in DTW visits. The local government is anticipating mass gatherings of tourists as trial openings of tourist attractions in Bali begin.
“If there is a vehicle with an incorrect license plate number, it will be asked to make a U-turn,“ said Samsi Gunarta.
