Jakarta (ANTARA) - The National Police's Traffic Corps will implement the odd-even traffic scheme from KM 414 Kalikangkung to KM 0 Jakarta-Cikampek during the Eid return flow from April 12 to 14.

The National Police's traffic director, Aan Suhanan, said on Thursday that the odd-even scheme is quite effective in reducing the number of vehicles on toll roads and preventing traffic jams.

CCTV cameras are used to supervise the scheme, and violators will receive electronic tickets

In the odd-even scheme implementation during the exodus flow from April 5–9, as many as 4,027 vehicles were caught violating the rules by traffic cameras, he said.

Police sent the tickets to the offenders' addresses through state postal company Pos Indonesia.

"We have sent (the tickets) and they will be effective for confirmation after April 16," he said.

More than 1,500 traffic violation tickets have been sent via Pos Indonesia, Suhanan added.

"There are already five offenders confirming (the tickets) online," he said.

The Traffic Corps has not only ticketed odd-even violators, but also three-axis freight transport vehicles or trucks found violating passing rules after the imposition of the traffic ban.

"We are cracking down on more than 5,000 cases of violations by three-axis freight transport," he said.

Suhanan asked truck drivers to comply with the prevailing rules to support the Eid return flow.

"This is our concern for the three-axis vehicles during the return flow, especially those that will cross from Bakauheni to Merak," he said.
