JAKARTA'S NON-MOTORIZED MODES 'LIVING DANGEROUSLY'
In Indonesia, as in many rapidly growing East Asian countries, a combination of increasing incomes, high population densities, and public policies borrowed from the West, have conributed to a disastrous traffic snarl. According to the Far Eastern Economic Review, by 2015 it is conceivable that there will be 30 million people living in the Jakarta metro area alone, generating 24 million daily commuter trips. This article focuses on the restrictions of the becak, a three-wheeled human-powered taxi, and it's effects upon Indonesia's worsening traffic problem.
