The Transportation Ministry of Indonesia has released a regulation that requires the installation of GPS devices in all public vehicles. The step has been taken to make it possible to monitor the operation of different vehicles and the driving tactics of drivers. Transportation Ministry land transportation director-general Ahmad Yani said that with the help of GPS, it would become possible to know about the exact position of a vehicle. Further, he said that GPS would allow tracking the driver’s performance and all the details about the management of the vehicles as well as their speed.
In Land Transportation Director General Regulation No. KP.2081/AJ.801/DRJD/2019, all the requirement of GPS have been mentioned clearly. Ahmad Yahi added that apart from tracking the activities of drivers and the position of a vehicle, it will become possible for the transportation companies to improve the efficiency of their service. As per the regulation, care should be taken by the transportation companies to make sure the GPS provides information on the vehicle’s real-time position on Google Maps, odometer data on the vehicle’s speed, pick-up and destination locations, and other important related details.
Kurnia Lesani Adnan, Indonesian Bus Operator Association (IPONO) chairman shared that the new regulation will help to improve the efficiency of bus operations as it would help to prevent the misuse of the vehicles. Ahmad Yani said the government has also prepared sanctions for those operators who overlooked the regulations.
