Jakarta – The demonstration that was held online taxi driver in front of the Ministry of Transportation (Kemenhub), Central Jakarta, had chaotic when a minibus and another car desperate through the ranks of demonstrators.
Monitoring Liputan6.com, Monday (29/1/2018), the mass on the Transjakarta or busway lane immediately yelled while cursing the car driver. They growled and hit the black silver minibus.
One of the protesters, Mamet, suspects the vehicle is one of the online taxis that accept the Regulation Permenhub 108 Year 2017. It was because there is a sticker affixed to the car.
“It’s an online taxi that has a brave character, I know we have a demo, and there are 200 cars with stickers,” Mamet said on the spot.
The mass of action was emotional and asked for another vehicle that trail behind the minibus turned the direction. Officers also helped secure the vehicle. Only Transjakarta Buses are allowed to pass by.
“The online taxi would be if it were not the online taxi of his car taped to the ad,” Mamet said.
Minister of Transportation Concerned
The online taxi drivers began to arrive into the parking area IRTI National Monument (Monas).
To ease the mood, a policeman tried to calm the demonstrators by saying there was a misunderstanding. A minibus painted with one of the food or biscuit brands is an advertising car.
“It’s a passing advertising advertising car,” said the police officer who refused to be identified.
Meanwhile, Minister of Transportation (Menhub) Budi Karya Sumadi admitted concerned about the still rejection of Regulation of the Minister (PM) 108 of 2017, which regulates the taxi online.
Supposedly, said Budi Karya, some parties who still reject it better understand the essence of the regulation, without looking from one side.
“This rule is made for equality between online taxis and conventional taxis,” said Budi Karya at the Coordinating Ministry of Maritime Affairs in Jakarta on Monday (29/1/2018).
