TRIBUNNEWS.COM, JAKARTA – The Ministry of Transportation (Kemenhub) urges the public to be more careful before using public transport services in nets, especially online taxis.

The appeal was inseparable from the continuing occurrence of cases of sexual harassment by online taxi drivers against passengers.

“Regarding the online one, we only want to say that what is ordered is different between the vehicle and the driver, do not go up first. Keep the safety first,” said Director of Safety Development of the Directorate General of Land Transportation, Ministry of Transportation Risal Wasal, in Jakarta, Friday (10/12/2018) .

In this regard, Risal said that the Ministry of Transportation would try to arrange the driver selection by an applicator in the new ministerial regulation replacing PM 108.

Risal added, the Ministry of Transportation had asked the online transportation applicator to be more selective in choosing their riders.

“We will ask for a focus on how the applicator’s role will be in the selection. Later, we will also see what their recruitment process is. The questions are set in the new regulations, we will see later,” he said.
