JAKARTA, KOMPAS.com – Not a few citizens who feel the impact of the impact of sweeping action made by taxi drivers on several streets of protocol on Tuesday (22/3/2016) morning.
One of Kompas.com’s crew members was affected. Intending to Constitutional Court Building (MK) on Jalan Medan Merdeka Barat, PPD 213 which was boarded was forced to stop in Karet area. The driver and the kernet did not dare to pass.
Public vessels had previously been stoned, he said. All the bus passengers were forced to go down in a hurry.
From a distance there was mass scattered on the streets. It is not clear what they are doing. Some of them even just watch.
Using TransJakarta bus transportation modes is also not much help. Due to the tremendous traffic density this morning, the distance between Transjakarta buses is so long that the bus does not arrive at the bus stop.
“There is, but a long time, Mbak, if hurry, go up the other course,” said Transjakarta officer at the bus stop.
Also seen, a number of taxis parked on Jalan Gatot Soebroto. Traffic was crowded as a number of private vehicles and other public vehicles crammed into the same streets.
Entering Sudirman area, the streets increasingly crowded with taxis whose drivers rallied. Not only taxis, angkot and bajaj come to enliven.
After being dropped from the PPD bus, passengers were forced to travel on foot. Not a few who directly reached into his pocket and took his cell phone. Complained because his trip was hampered.
The road closer to the roundabout HI, the streets getting deserted. Vehicles are not marching until the region. Because the streets are blocked, the Sudirman-Thamrin road is practically empty. Only a limited number of private vehicles pass by. That can be counted fingers.
