Budi Setiyadi, Director General of Land Transport at the Ministry of Transport, recommends the use of a global positioning system (GPS) integrated into the dashboard of the car, which would have been tested and proven.
This confirms that it is prohibited to use the aftermarket products of GPS devices and GPS on mobile phones, such as motorcycles, and that police officers in the field will issue tickets to them.
The ban on the use of GPS was again crammed after the Constitutional Court (MK) failed to take legal action against the Road Traffic and Transport Act No. 22 of the use of the Global Positioning System (GPS) in proposed driving. by the Toyota Soluna community and online transportation drivers in March 2018.
With decision number 23 / PUU-XVI / 2018, the police will take drastic action against any misplaced GPS user. The police will act because the driver violates Article 106 of the Traffic and Transport Law No. 22 of 2009.
Article 106 is then correlated with Article 283, which states that any person drives a motor vehicle on an unsuitable road and carries out other activities or is affected by a condition causing a disturbance of the concentration while driving on the road , as referred to in 1.
Offenders incur a maximum penalty of three months imprisonment or a maximum fine of Rp. 750 thousand.
The ban on GPS viewing by the police is becoming more and more confusing, as the content of the article does not specifically indicate how to use GPS while driving properly and without breaking the rules.
Article by Article of the Law LLAJ is recognized by plaintiffs as a non-literate technology. Motorcycle taxi drivers online feel very disadvantaged by the law because they are very dependent on GPS applications when they serve passengers.
The Association of Online Drivers (ADO) believes that the government should review its rules because it does not follow the acceleration of digitization.
In the digital age, GPS in mobile phones is considered a necessity. Meanwhile, cell phones they use also do not allow you to listen to music and receive calls while driving.
CNNIndonesia.com queries 499 respondents, 44% of whom used a cell phone while driving to access the GPS. Others use mobile phones for other activities, such as listening to music and calling.
"But that does not mean that we accept it directly, the therapy of our main stages is the revision of the law 22 in order to adapt it to the technological evolutions", declared the president general of the main board of ADO Christiansen , FW Wagey.
Article 106 (1) of the Traffic and Transport Act (Act) No. 22 of 2009 is called the rubber article because it has no clear benchmarks. People need a definition of "concentration disruption" when driving.
A number of things that bullies started to talk about were considered to interfere with driver concentration, smoking while driving, listening to music, or even seeing advertisements on billboards could disrupt the driver's concentration.
The police reject the LLAJ law, called raising doubts in the community. According to the head of the Sub-Directorate of Law Enforcement at the Traffic Directorate of Polda Metro Jaya, Deputy High Commissioner Herman Ruswandi, the Constitutional Court's decision on GPS is clear to improve road safety .
In Part III of the Constitutional Court's decision, it is explained in its contents that "by" total concentration "is meant any person who drives a motorized vehicle carefully and without interruption because of illness, fatigue, drowsiness , on the phone or while watching television or videos on the vehicle or drinks containing alcohol or drugs affecting your ability to drive a vehicle.
