“These three policies will encourage massive emission tests and have an impact on improving air quality in the capital city,” said Asep.
Meanwhile Polda Metro Jaya, as the party carrying out law enforcement for traffic violators, said that fines for residents who do not carry out vehicle emission tests are still in the socialization stage.
“Currently it’s still socializing first. There’s no ticketing yet. So they were told if they had to do an emissions test,” said Head of Sub-Directorate of Gakkum Ditlantas Polda Metro Jaya AKBP Jhoni Eka Putra,
