Kuta’s Community Empowerment Organization (LPM) sweep the streets again to conduct their routine operation of deflating the tyres of vehicles that are parked in non-parking zones.
Head of LPM Kuta, Gusti Agung Made Agung explained that the operation was a response to public complaints, and that they have collaborated with Badung District Transportation Agency and the municipal police (Satpol PP) to target vehicles that are parked in no-parking zones and on the pavement, as quoted from Seminyak Times.
“This is actually a scheduled operation,” Made Agung said, as quoted by Nusa Bali. “And this time around we decided to be more stern, which is to deflate the tyres.”
He added, it needs the participation of business owners in Kuta as well. “We expect hotels and restaurant who employ security staff to participate. At least in their surrounding area.”
The parking issue is mainly caused by people’s lack of order, and to further exacerbate the matter, there are still plenty of business owners who don’t provide proper parking spaces.
Meanwhile, the Head of Badung’s Transportation Agency, AA Rai Yuda Dharma, stated that the government is also working hard to find a solution. “The parking problem in Kuta is still the main focus for the government, and we want to come up with a long-term solution. The government plans to add more parking lots but is having trouble with finding the space.”
