Jakarta’s Traffic Jam Issue. Academic Writing II Assignment

Jakarta’s traffic jam are beyond crazy. I’ve experienced one of the craziest traffic gridlock on December 2012. Can you imagine from Pondok Indah Mall to Metro Kencana Street (near Bukit Golf) you have sit in a car for 3 hours??!! Usually from PIM to my house it only take 5-15 minu

Living in this city, you have to be wise and clever enough deciding where you want to go, at what time are you leaving and going home, which route should you take and many consideration to avoid Jakarta’s nightmare.. the traffic.

Jakarta as the capital city of Indonesia, also known as the Metropolitan City, are known for its modern way of live, beautiful tall buildings (especially around Sudirman :p), rich peoples and the crazy traffic. Due to high demand of private transportation (cars, motorcycle) in big city, especially in Jakarta, I think it is hard to push the transportation circulation in the city. 

Many people consider to use personal vehicle or public transportation like taxi to go everywhere (even though they already know about the traffic issue). This traffic problem are very crucial. The government have think of many way to solve this problem such as creating new public transport, implementing 3 in 1 and the latest option is to limit the private vehicle circulation by implementing the car-color coding bid (which is still tentative until now).

I think the cal-color coding bid isn’t really effective. I think what the government should do is to fasten the Monorail Jakarta Project (because I think this new transportation are very fresh, so it attracts many people) and build more flyover (such as Antasari Flyover) also re-new the Busway buses and build new station and add new routes.
