This is typical Jakarta's traffic. Jakarta is the country's economic, cultural and political centre. Has an area of 661 square kilometres (255 sq. mil). Home to 9.6 million people who at least drive a motorcycle and cars to go to work or to move around the city everyday. It is the most populous city in Indonesia and in Southeast Asia, and is the thirteenth-largest city in the world. Without no decent public transport, 5-10 years from now, is it indeed that Jakarta will have an economic crisis due to the traffic that increase every year. The city still suffers a lack of urban public transport services due to the prioritized development of road networks, which is mostly designed to accommodate private vehicles.

I still can't believe after with all the traffic and bad public transportation, the government still confuse about the solutions. Well, i guess the government need to follow how the dutch manage to change their road from designed vehicles to cycling infrastructure.
