Take care of yourselves, take care of the parents' feelings and worries who gave birth to you, raise you
Jakarta (ANTARA) - Youngsters from Sudirman, Citayam, Bojonggede, and Depok (SCBD) visiting Dukuh Atas, Central Jakarta, have been asked to return home by 10 p.m. at the latest so that they do not miss the last train home.

"Take care of yourselves, take care of the parents' feelings and worries who gave birth to you, raise you. They do not want to and are very worried that you go home late, especially if you do not go home. You are the future of your family and our nation," Jakarta Deputy Governor Ahmad Riza Patria said in a post on his Instagram account @arizapatria on Friday.

Some "SCBD" youngsters have been seen hanging out at the venue after 10 p.m., and even sleeping on the bridge in Dukuh Atas, after failing to catch the train home, he pointed out.

Earlier, a viral video showed some teenagers sleeping soundly on a bridge near the BNI City Station without sleeping pads.

The viral video was entitled “The dark side of Citayam Fashion Week.” It alleged that the youngsters who chose to sleep on the bridge were waiting for the morning train to return home.

Officers from the Jakarta Public Order Agency (Satpol PP) handled the situation by waking them up.

Meanwhile, Patria said that hanging out late at night, even to the point of falling asleep, can increase youngsters’ vulnerability to crime.

He emphasized that 10 p.m. is the time limit for hanging out in the Dukuh Atas area or other city parks in Jakarta.

"We appreciate this cool creativity; we give two thumbs up when (they) use local products. However, it is mandatory to return home by 10 p.m., or before it is even better, so as not to miss the train for those whose homes are in Citayam, Bojonggede, and others," he said.
