Central Java Police Chief Issues Edict Banning Noisy Exhausts Ahead of Open Campaign


Jakarta, IO – Central Java Police Chief Insp. Gen. Ahmad Luthfi issued a decree prohibiting the use of noisy exhausts for motocycles during the public rally ahead of the 2024 elections, per detikcom, Fri (5/1).

The police have taken steps to socialize the ban in a structured and massive fashion, including through outreach and warnings to users or workshops that produce and distribute such type of exhaust.

“We will carry out massive and structured activities before the implementation (of public rally) on the 21st.
